Best of Natural Awards

Are you a natural winner? Enter the 2020 Best of Natural Awards and find out!

We want to champion the best natural products and celebrate those with the highest quality, ingredient, ethical and environmental standards. Those brands who are striving to do good things for people and the planet.

The awards categories cover clean beauty, eco living, natural health and nutrition. Our panel of expert judges will personally test each product, selecting (and rewarding) the very best. They’ll award points for quality, ingredients, performance, ethics, creativity, ingenuity, sustainability and socially responsible business practices. In other words, the best of all the stuff that matters.

  • So send us a sample, and tell us your story.
  • Show us how you made it, and why it matters.
  • Share the inspiration for your product and describe how you went about getting started.
  • Then tell us why you deserve to win!

This is an opportunity not to be missed to elevate your brand and awareness with thousands of Kiwi consumers. The winner for each award category will receive extensive coverage for their coveted status of being ‘the best in natural’, reaching over 350,000 conscious consumers through the combined databases of Good Magazine and HealthPost, including:

  • Print reach Good Magazine
  • Digital reach Good Magazine
  • Print reach HealthPost (Healthy Posting)
  • Digital reach HealthPost

So if you’ve got the best natural product that you’re proud of, we want to hear about it.

And, we want to try it.

Naturally, we’re pretty excited.

Target audience:

Premium female, 25 – 45 years, New Zealanders

Winners will be showcased editorially in Good magazine and promoted on Good and HealthPost’s digital platforms.

The Best of Natural Awards will be judged on a combination of ingredients, ethics, performance, creativity, ingenuity, sustainability and socially responsible business practices. In other words, the best of all the stuff that matters.
