Research Papers

Background research papers for each prize category aim to increase awareness of the Lush Prize and ensure nominations.

The Papers are prepared by Ethical Consumer Research Association with input from judges and previous winners.

Each Paper gives an overview of the various awards with:

  • general background of the field,
  • who is active in each area,
  • possible winners who may not otherwise be nominated, and
  • general advice on the future direction of the Prize.

Papers for previous years can be downloaded as PDF documents:
