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.
