The CSWC Judge Association announced the international panel of judges for the grand finale.


Marija Marovic - CSWC Head Judge for more than decade - sharp and without mercy 

In 2021. Club Mareva has established the International Judges Association within the organization. Time was right to make that one big step in a serious direction, since the Cigar Smoking World Championship is no longer just fun and games. Now it`s more of a real sport.

CSWC Judge Association is unquestionably a significant step forward for CSWC, and one of the most significant in the organization's history. It was at this point that CSWC established itself as a serious global organization. The incredible individuals who  are members of  this organization are the power of CSWC - Marko Bilic, CSWC Founder
