The Craft Beer Marketing Awards launched in 2020 featuring over 30 categories celebrating the very best of beer marketing and design, and the teams and individuals behind them. Breweries, their artists, designers, branders, and marketers are invited to enter their top work. The 2021 CBMAs have expanded to now include the entire globe. The 2021 CBMAs will also now accept entries from across the wide world of craft beer – including spiked seltzer, mead, and cider. Entries open October 1, 2020 for early bird discount, and will be accepted entries through January 29, 2021. Entries are divided up into five regions:
- North America / South America
- United Kingdom
- Asia / Pacific / Australia / New Zealand
- Middle East / Africa / All Others
Platinum and Gold Crushies will be awarded to each region. Silver Global Crushies will be awarded to those who opt-in to be judged at the worldwide level. All categories are judged by an influential and respected panel of beer, marketing, and design experts hand selected from across the globe. The CBMAS judging process is a robust, credible, and transparent digital scoring system.
