HOW THE AWARDS WORK

All successfully vetted products are judged against one another on the strength of their innovation alone – there are no product categories.

The judges can award up to eight Innovation Awards - one of which can be upgraded to a Gold Award for excellence.

Plus, the judges can present one Sustainability Award for a product that shows impressive eco credentials.
