About our Awards

No Voting, No Sponsors, No Ads.

Our Awards are not sponsored, we don’t run ads and products are judged by industry experts, not voted for. The products that win are those which clearly, decisively receive the highest rankings from the judges and have merited the most positive comments. Small brands and start-ups are encouraged to enter. We support indie brands and the big global baby brands equally and have no hidden allegiances or financial tie-ins to any brand whatsoever, to keep the Awards 100% clean, green and absolutely independent, which is one of the reasons these Awards are trusted implicitly by consumers.
