The World Chilli Award is a project launched by World Chilli Alliance with the aim of giving all participants the opportunity to exhibit their own spicy product(s). These will be evaluated in a tasting competition performed by a panel of experts involved in the chilli industry, chefs, and food professionals.


Winners are determined on the basis of the judges’ evaluation of products and will be listed on the WCA official website and promoted through our social media platforms. Winning participants will receive the World Chilli Award and their product(s) which came out on top will be advertised in all chilli-related events carried out or co-organized by WCA. 

The award contains the following information:

Name of the Participant: Individual/Business

Product Name

Product Category: oil, sauce, pickled product, seasoning, etc.

Product placement in award 

Judges’ Evaluation: comments on product’s appearance, aroma, taste by itself, taste paired with food. 

Three places are reserved for winning products:

  • an exclusive promotion of the winning product(s) on our official social media channels and during events organized and co-organized by the World Chilli Alliance;
  • a listing in the World Chilli Award database on our official website;
  • World Chilli Award logo to be used in all promotional materials for better promoting your chilli-based product(s);
