Welcome to the Product of the Year 2017 Entry Form!

You’re in the right place to participate in the nation’s largest consumer survey on product innovation, where winners are picked by 5,000 consumers. Entry only takes a couple of minutes. Please be sure to download the full Terms & Conditions and read the details below.

What Do You Need to Enter?

    • Product Description. You will need to enter a paragraph of no more than 75 words describing your product and its innovative features. Feel free to contact us for sample descriptions from past winners.
    • Authorization. Please make sure you have authorization to enter on behalf of the brand.


What Happens After You Enter?

The Rules
You’re about to join a prestigious roster of brands that regularly compete for the Product of the Year distinction. But we want to make sure this is the right thing for you and you’re the right person to do this. Please be sure to read the Terms & Conditions in full. And just in case you miss them, here are three things you should know:

    • If your product is voted a winner of its category, your total costs will be R199,500 (Early Settlement) and R205,000 (Late Settlement), if you do not win then you pay absolutely nothing! Please see the chart below for a full breakdown of the costs. All entrants, win or lose, will receive the full report on their category from Nielsen.
    • Products cannot opt out once submitted. Due to the nature of the study, doing so may jeopardize the other products or even a whole category.
    • The entry form is an electronic contract. You don’t get a paper to sign in the mail because by clicking “submit” you’re signing the form. It’s no different than shopping online.
