    Rolling out the red carpet for the outdoor industry

    EmilyThe Great Outdoors Awards celebrate the products, people and services that contribute to our enjoyment of the hills and mountains. The awards are presented by The Great Outdoors magazine, the UK’s most established and respected hillwalking publication.

    The Great Outdoors Awards are divided into two distinct sets of categories – in the public awards, anyone who enjoys hillwalking and backpacking in the British Isles has the opportunity to nominate and vote for their favourite retailers, campaigners and tourism providers, as well as the outdoor book they’ve found most inspiring this year. In the judges’ awards, outdoor clothing and equipment brands submit their most innovative flagship products of 2014 for assessment by our expert panel.

    Every year, we receive hundreds of entries in the gear awards and thousands of votes for the public categories, providing a fascinating insight into the innovations taking place across the outdoors and the service providers who are really pushing the boat out.

    We look forward to receiving your nominations and votes and to welcoming those who are shortlisted to the awards ceremony at the start of this year’s Kendal Mountain Festival on 19 November 2014.
