Once the application has been validated, you can always go back to your account and add the visual of the bottles, the analyses, the proof of payment in the case of a bank transfer, as well as the necessary document if you are presenting a spirit that is still in vat. If you do not have the analysis at the time of registration, it is imperative that we receive it no later than 3 weeks before the competition start.

The invoice will be sent automatically to the e-mail address registered in your file, within a few days after the reception of your payment.

If you require an invoice in advance in order to pay for your participation, please request one from our team at
