Judging usually takes place in September.

The judges are invited to nominate one individual or organisation each.

We try to draw our judges from a wide spectrum of people including independent scientists, prominent activists, experts from within industry and Animal Welfare NGOs, politicians and in the past Lush customers and employees.

The judges for 2015 will be confirmed soon.

Last year we have eight judges from Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Korea, UK and the USA. See biographies of the panel of the 2014 Judging Panel.
