Get your nominations in for the 2019 Reader Awards.

We’re excited to announce that the nominations for our hotly anticipated 2019 Reader Awards are now open. 

Every year since 2012, The Great Outdoors Awards have recognised the people, places and organisations that help us all get the most out of our time in the hills.

Maybe you’ve experienced excellent customer service at your local outdoor shop or had the perfect post-walk pint at the end of a trail. Perhaps you’ve downloaded a walking app that’s gone over and above, or you’ve read a brilliant new outdoors book. You’ll get the chance to tell us about all these and more. This year’s categories can be found here.

Each year we receive hundreds of entries and thousands of votes, providing a fascinating insight into the innovations taking place across the outdoors and the service providers who are really pushing the boat out. We can’t wait to hear what’s new for 2019 with your nominations.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your nominations in here.


  • Nominations for the Reader Awards close on 20 August.
  • Voting will then take place online from 13 September to 18 November.
  • Winners will be announced in the January 2020 issue of The Great Outdoors.
