Green Lifestyle Awards – Nominating for a chance to Win a 4-night stay at Paperbark Camp valued at $3000

Just by submitting a nomination you could WIN a four-night stay at Paperbark Camp, valued at over $3,000!

Combining unique luxury tented accommodation with wonderful food and hospitality, Paperbark Camp is a peaceful bush retreat – think camping for grown ups!

Earning an advanced accreditation from Ecotourism Australia, Paperbark Camp has solar-powered tents, successful re-vegetation projects, and a distinct lack of fences to help maintain the wildlife corridor. It was also highly commended in our 2013 Green Lifestyle Awards. The property has numerous hiking, biking and kayaking options, and the bird watching on site is spectacular.

The four-night twin-share prize includes cooked-to-order breakfast daily, an in-room massage for two, complimentary dinner for two at The Gunyah Restaurant, and all the usual benefits that guests enjoy.

Paperbark Camp is located in Jervis Bay, just over two hours drive from Sydney on the south coast of NSW. The prize is for up to two for a mid-week Bed & Breakfast stay out of peak season. This prize applies to readers only, not to businesses nominating themselves. The winner has 12 months to use their prize, and will be contacted via phone and email after 17 October, 2014.

Judging and Finalist Selection:
Entrants will be put through an initial screening based on their environmental and ethical principles. The resulting shortlist will be judged between 6 and 30 September 2014 by the panel of judges outlined on the Green Lifestyle Awards website and below.
This is a contest of skill and chance plays no part in determining the winner. Each individual entry will be judged by the Judging Panel. The judges are seeking businesses, products and services that minimise their environmental footprint as much as possible. The judges will favour products/services/organisations acting on major environmental issues or with the potential to make larger cuts to people’s eco-footprints, or who have the greatest potential for direct or indirect influence, particularly in areas that are relatively un- engaged. The judges will also be looking for clear disclosure of commercial interests, funding sources, advertising or other conflicts of interests, particularly in the information sites category. In the people category, judges are seeking people who have made a significant impact in the green and/or community sector. The judges decision is final and cannot be appealed or contested.
The Judging Panel consists of: Caitlin Howlett – Editor of Green Lifestyle; Karel Boele – director of EcoDirectory Australia; Matt Perry – Director of marketing and engagement at the Centre for Social Impact and the cofounder and partner of Republic of Everyone; Tanya Ha – environmentalist, author, science journalist, television presenter; Patrice Newell – biodynamic farmer and author; and Jon Dee – the founder of Do Something! and Planet Ark.
One winner and one highly commended runner up will be announced for each sub-category at an industry event in Sydney on 16 October 2014. Winners and highly commended runners up will be announced on from 17 October and from 20 October, 2014. Winners and event photographs will be hosted on the Green Lifestyle Awards website until 2015.
