How To Judge World Championship Chili In Myrtle Beach This September

Updated: a day ago

The World Championship Chili Cook-off is seeking judges for the September event in Myrtle Beach. For this year's event, all judges must take the Certified Chili Judges (CCJ) course on site, prior to the competition, even if previously certified.

To sign up for judging, visit, pay for the on-site instruction, and complete the application.

After a judge pays for the CCJ course and submits their application at the link above, they will receive an email within 3-5 business days that confirms the submission was received. Then, in the coming weeks, ICS will reach out to each individual judge with their assignments for the weekend.

Anyone registered for the 54th Annual World’s Championship is not permitted to participate in the judging process at the event, and will be informed of their application status upon confirmation email.

To learn how to enter the competition or judge the entries, simply follow the International Chili Society on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@ICSChili). To learn more about the event itself, follow the World Championship Chili Cook-off on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
