Entries are now open for the Beautiful Awards

Businesses, community groups and individuals are encouraged to showcase the brilliant work you do for the environment by entering the Beautiful Awards.

The Awards, run by Keep NZ Beautiful, recognise environmental excellence and positive actions to protect and enhance our local environments. Last year Plastic-Free Coromandel Town won the Community Group Award, along with our new Hot Water Beach toilet winning the Plumbing World Best Loo Award.

"Coromandel, let's get behind this again,” says our Mayor Sandra Goudie. “Last year was awesome and reflects what our local communities care about and what is truly special and unique to us - our place - our environment."

This annual competition is open to all individuals, environmental groups, schools, businesses and councils. The 17 official awards are across five categories: Individuals, Communities, Businesses, Places, Small and Large Towns and Cities.

Entries are valid for projects, campaigns and initiatives which have been completed between 1 August 2018 and 31 July 2019 unless otherwise stipulated in the outlined criteria. Entries close Wednesday 31 July 2019.

If you have any questions or queries, please email projects@knzb.org.nz
