About the Award

The Pomona award, which is named after the Roman Goddess of apples, honours a person, group, organisation, idea or concept (where a recipient can be identified) that has made an outstanding achievement, commitment, or contribution to the promotion of real cider or perry.

Nominations are sought annually, closing on 1 August, but the award will only be awarded in years when it is felt there is a suitable candidate.

Submissions for this year’s Pomona award nominations are now open!

Get involved!

Members of CAMRA can submit nominations by clicking on the ‘nominate’ button.

All forms of cider and/or perry campaigning are eligible.
