National Selections : Introduction

Mystery ingredients

The first round of the World Chocolate Masters competition consists of national selections, held at local trade fairs or technical schools. At the national selections, a jury of nationally renowned professionals gathers to evaluate the creativity & technical capacities of their local contestants and the taste of all of their creations. Seventeen finalists will be appointed in selection rounds all over the world!

The World Chocolate Masters is a brand new competition . This year's edition is a transition towards the full integration of the "Grand Prix International de la Chocolaterie" and the "International Belgian Chocolate Award" (see "About the competition : History"). As a result, some countries are completing their local contest, instead of the official World Chocolate Masters selection. The Organising Committee carefully watches over the level of these local selections before allowing them as an official national selection for the World Chocolate Masters. At the finals, all finalists have the same assignment.
