Good magazine and Ceres Organics want to personally thank every entrant of the inaugural Ceres Organics Good People Awards. The judging panel read each entry, and wow, it left them feeling filled up, inspired and at times teary. It is comforting to know that there are so many incredible ‘good people’ out in our community, shaping our nation and making a difference.
Because the standard of entries was so high the judges worked with a criteria to select the 12 category winners in organics, food/beverage, environment, social enterprise/charity, design, arts, fashion, technology, beauty, education, tourism/travel and wellbeing.
What was the product/offer differentiation versus others in the marketplace?
To what extent do they solve a consumer/category problem?
To what extent are they doing good – ethics, sustainability, community, giving back?
And, what is their vision for the future, and how much impact will they make?
Using those guidelines brought us to our 12 category winners. You can read each individual category winner's profile here now. Their stories are inspiring and we offer them our special congratulations too.
What is exciting is that we are now in phase two of the Ceres Organics Good People Awards. The next step is to crown one of these 12 winners as the People’s Choice winner who will win a $5,000 cash prize. That is where you come in.
