This year’s Best of Show prizes went to Colinas de Garzon of Uruguay in the Delicate” cat­e­gory; Alonso Olive Oil of Chile in the Medium” cat­e­gory; and Olave of Chile in the Robust” cat­e­gory. Alonso Olive Oil also received the Marco Mugelli Award given in mem­ory of the for­mer com­pe­ti­tion judge and renowned expert.

A total of 48 Gold Medal Awards, 25 Silver Medal Awards and 20 Bronze Medal Awards were given out. Though it did not receive a Best of Show des­ig­na­tion, New Zealand took home an impres­sive thir­teen gold medals, nearly a third of all the gold medals awarded, as well as four sil­ver medals and two bronze.
