Yes, we will be holding the NEXTY Awards for Expo West 2023! Finalists and winners will be recognized and celebrated in-person at the show, virtually on the Expo West virtual platform and on newhope.com. The nomination and judging process will remain the same.
Becoming a finalist and/or winning a NEXTY Award offers brands incredible recognition and validation in the natural products industry. Check out all the benefits here!
We do not define “new” in relation to the NEXTY Awards since we believe older products that have not yet gained general recognition in the natural products industry may still be worthy of this award. While filling out the nomination form, you will be asked to fill in the product's launch date, however, so this information will be available to the judges.
Yes, send enough product samples per category for judging analysis to the New Hope Network office (Attn: NEXTY Awards, 5541 Central Ave, Suite 150, Boulder, CO, 80301). For example, if you nominate the same product in four different categories, please send at least four samples of the same product so it can be represented in each of those four categories during judging.
Yes, you can enter the same product/product line in more than one category. There is no limit on how many categories you can submit a product to, however, every new category requires a separate nomination.
For example: A company has a new line of organic vegan yogurt. This product could be entered in any or all of the follow categories: Certified Organic or Regenerative Product, Best New Special Diet Product, Best New Meat or Dairy Alternative, and/or Best New Sweet Snack.
You may choose to submit one or more products in a single line, but each flavor or variety submitted counts as a separate nomination.
For example: A company has a line of high-protein milk in five flavors. If they want to submit all five flavors, that would count as five nominations. If they want to nominate only one product, they should choose their favorite/most representative/best selling flavor or variety from the line.
Yes, your product will need to meet New Hope Network's Ingredient Standards & Guidelines, which are the same standards and guidelines in place for exhibitors at Natural Products Expos. The New Hope Network Standards team will evaluate product prior to the judging process and remove any products that do not meet our standards for ingredients and efficacy.
*If your product contains cannabinoids, please consult the standards requirements for these ingredients here.

The NEXTY Award categories are a reflection of the product categories that exhibit at our Natural Product Expos. While some categories have remained consistent throughout the history of the NEXTY Awards, such as Best New Supplement, other categories have been added, altered or eliminated to reflect changing patterns in the natural products industry.
