The World Aeropress Championships have grown year on year and in 2014 we had 33 national competitions. It is becoming more and more popular and to avoid clashes at national level, we’ve needed to introduce new regulations for national coordinators – which will be evolving over the next few weeks.
The arrangements for 2015 Aeropress championships for national organisers have changed slightly. To ensure you are given certification to be the official national competition, you’ll need to ensure the following requirements are fulfilled :
a guaranteed 1st prize of a flight to Seattle to compete in the WACs for the winner of the national competition.
all details of the national competition need to be announced on the WAC website at least 6 weeks before the competition date to ensure all potential competitors have time to register their interest to compete
a poster for the competition needs to be commissioned
a report and review of the competition, including the winner’s recipes, need to be submitted to the WACs for publishing on the WAC website – media, including photos, need to be submitted too.
Currently, we are working on having the national Aeropress distributor of your country to assist in the running costs of the competition. We are also working on other sponsorship options to help to contribute to the cost of running the competition. Details will follow soon. It remains your responsibility to arrange and seek sponsorship assistance locally from potential supporters of the competition.
Further details on the arrangements for national competitions will be coming soon. In the meantime, please contact WAC Headquarters via the Contact page. You can also see most of the rules and regulations, including a handy ‘How to…’ video via the Rules page.
Your support and expansion of the competition is thanks to the generous and talented national organisers and volunteers.
