The 2019 Wilderness Outdoor Awards celebrate all things New Zealand and what we love doing when we have a spare moment. If you have a favourite brand you couldn’t be without every time you pack your bags and head out for an adventure, why not nominate them?
This year marks Domex’s 40th anniversary – that’s right, they’ve been making sleeping bags for 40 years! Domex was born in Auckland back in 1979. Since then, Domex has been sharing good times with New Zealanders going on camping trips, hunting trips, slumber parties and even camping out on the back lawn. We may be a little biased, but we think that makes Domex worthy of a nomination or two. Nominate here
It’s not all about products: if you have a favourite hut you think everyone should visit once in their lives, nominate it. It could be something that sets this hut apart from all the others; a cool feature – maybe the long drop’s million-dollar view?!
You only have until 9 September to get your nominations in. Here’s the full list of categories:
Outdoor hero of the year
Hut of the year
Independent retailer of the year
Chain retailer of the year
Online retailer of the year
Brand of the year
Top tip: Wilderness magazine wants to know who you’ve nominated and why. The better your nomination, the more likely your nominee will make it through to the finals.
How the Outdoor Awards work
Readers need to nominate their favourite brands, stores, heroes and huts. From there, finalists will be selected. After that it’s down to a vote.
Here’s the timeline:
September 9 – nominations close
October issue – finalists announced and voting for the winners begins
October 13 – voting closes
December issue – winners announced!
