HOW THE AWARDS WORK

1. Testing & Shortlisting

Products need to be entered online (closing date 13th March 2020) and then sent to our editorial offices for initial testing. The knowledgeable Veggie team will then judge each item, based on the criteria set for each category, and will create a shortlist of the top 15 products in each category.

2. Celebrity Judging Round

Shortlisted products will be sent to our celebrity judges in April 2020, who will rate the products according to the criteria set for each category. They will then select their winners and highly commended products.

3. The Winners Announced

The winners will be then announced in an awards special magazine out 3rd September with Health & Wellbeing magazine, accompanied by extensive and ongoing social media and online promotion.
