World Wide Whisky Design Awards an Independent Whisk(e)y bottle and packaging design contest. Not about the drink but about the bottle and packaging !
The ratings, the nominations, the voting, everything comes from the community. The goal is to encourage nomination of new bottles and packagings, sharing your thoughts and opinion with others andÂ highlighting whiskey-packaging of all kinds.
The inception of a Whisk(e)y (bottle) design contest named: Het Whisky forum Design Award 2010 was dated February 5th 2010, and was received with great enthusiasm. During the voting period of the second contest the idea for an international version has matured.
And here it is: the World Wide Whisky Design Awards.
Because this is the first time ever, it was decided to start with an “all time” contest in 2012.
After the all-time “World Wide Whisky Design Awards (2012)” we intend to have subsequent annual awards that will only accept bottles and packages that came on the market in the “running year”. So the first annual edition is the 2013 contest that will then only accept bottles and packagings that came onto the market in 2nd-half 2012 and 1st-half or 9 months of 2013 (margins yet to be decided).
This first edition will be very special in that it can include very old and historical bottles until mid 2012.
This is a fully independent, independently owned and private initiative without any commercial, nor otherwise, involvement of the whisky-industry, producers, retail, importers and what have you. We are 100% impartial. WW WDA has no stake in the objects submitted. All comments have been written by the community and we will never allow preferential treatment or for-pay influence of rating or voting, one of the main reasons that registration is required.
We are not open to bribery but we do keep open the possibility of future sponsoring that may involve some form of promotion other than the Google-advertisements. But then we would still keep the contest independent. Hence we have placed some ads in the hope for some compensation of the costs involved to keep this site up and running.
