The Guild Awards 2020 close on Wednesday 30 September, so if you’ve not yet entered, now’s the time to dust off your work from the last year and submit it via our online entry form.

This year’s awards include eight  categories to enter,  covering many aspects of writing or communicating about beer and pubs. The Carlsberg UK Award for Best Writing on Sustainability in Beer and Pubs has been added for a second year, joining the Heineken Award for Best Online Communicator, and a new award for Best Communications about Beer and Pubs during Lockdown.  These sit alongside  categories for: Print Publications, Beer & Travel, Best Beer Broadcaster,  Best Citizen Beer Communicator and Best Corporate Communications.  Criteria and details of how to enter are all on the Awards page of our website.

Entering the Awards is an easy, online process – though non-digital files can also be accepted by post – and is free of charge to Guild members. Entrants can enter as many categories as they want – but may only submit each piece of work into TWO categories.  Work must have been published between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 to be eligible.

We will announce a shortlist in November, and the category winners and runners up, and overall Beer Writer of the Year 2020, at a virtual presentation in December.

We look forward to receiving your entry.

Any questions, please contact Awards organiser Ros Shiel: ros@shielporter.com.
