Congratulations to the winners of this year's Beautiful Awards.

The winners of this year's Beautiful Awards were celebrated on Thursday 29 October via a virtual awards ceremony.

Keep New Zealand Beautiful’s Awards are New Zealand’s longest-running sustainability awards and as such provide a benchmark for environmental excellence. Run annually since 1972, the Awards inspire, recognise and acknowledge those individuals, businesses, community groups, towns and cities who are working hard across Aotearoa to Keep New Zealand Beautiful.

Covid-19 has shifted the global landscape, and its long-term effects remain unclear. Celebrating environmental excellence, small wins and beautiful behaviour, whether personal or professional, is now more important than ever. We’ve had some amazing nominations for our Beautiful Awards this year, that show, by working together, we will come out of this a stronger community and a stronger nation, with a more sustainable future.
