Product of the Year is a prestigious consumer product award created to support highly innovative consumer packaged goods and give shoppers a shortcut to the very best new products on the market.
Here’s what makes the Product of the Year award completely unique:
- 100% Consumer-Voted. There are no experts or lab coats involved. Products are voted on entirely by a nationally representative sample of U.S. consumers.
- 100% Independent. The competing products have no other interest in being included other than to put their product to the test of consumers. There are no advertising discounts or packaged deals that often come with magazine awards.
- 100% Transparent. Brands can participate only if they enter and once a brand wins, the award is theirs to use. Product of the Year does not “nominate” brands or ask for a percentage of their sales if they win.
- Nation’s Largest Study. With over 40,000 Americans voting on products, Product of the Year conducts the nation’s largest consumer survey on innovation. The study is conducted with a representative sample of the U.S. population – therefore reflecting the opinions of the nation rather than a group of subscribers to one magazine or volunteers.
