RAS President's Medal

 The RAS President’s Medal is an annual award that has been recognising Australia’s best producers since 2006 – that’s 10 years of celebrating all that is great about Sydney Royal, the competitions and its outstanding producers from around Australia.


We have six contenders for the President’s Medal. They are already Sydney Royal Champions from across the latest Sydney Royal Wine, Dairy, Fine Food and Beer & Cider competitions. Now we have put them to the test based on their triple bottom line – profitability, community engagement and sustainability. View the 2015 finalists here.

The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on Thursday 23 July 2015 in The Stables, Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. 


Join our host, and RAS Vice President, Lyndey Milan OAM who will guide you on a journey of inspiring stories and a gastronomic showcase of each of the finalists’ champion product, through a menu crafted by our own Head Chef, Tim Browne. Joining Ms Milan OAM to delve deeper into the finalists’ stories will be roving reporter and RAS Agriculture GM, Murray Wilton.


Find out who will be heralded the Best of the Best and receive the 2015 and 10th Annual President’s Medal.
