2020 Nomination Resources
OHbaby! is a trusted name in the New Zealand pregnancy and parenting industry, recognised for our commitment to quality. For 19 years now, New Zealand parents have turned to OHbaby! for information, ideas, encouragement, and support in making their families’ most important decisions. The OHbaby! Awards have been developed to recognise, promote and celebrate the high quality of products and services in the New Zealand pregnancy and parenting industry. The awards are now a biennial fixture on the OHbaby! calendar.
The 2020 OHbaby! Awards, acknowledges and celebrates the best products and services in the New Zealand pregnancy and parenting industry. OHbaby! is a respected resource for information on all things related to pregnancy and parenting, and as New Zealand’s largest independent pregnancy and parenting brand, we have an influential, intelligent audience and participant numbers required to achieve a respectable, significant result.
By placing the OHbaby! award winning logo on your website, in your advertising, in store, and on your products and packaging, your product or service can receive the benefit of endorsement by a trusted New Zealand brand loved by Kiwi parents. The OHbaby! Awards logo carries the positive votes of thousands of New Zealand parents who know your product or service and believe it to be the best on the market.
New parents are introduced to the pregnancy and parenting industry every year, which makes it extremely important for you to constantly advertise and promote your product or service to the market. The OHbaby! Awards logo holds significant influence for first-time-parents and consumers making important purchasing decisions, as it gives your product or service prominence and credibilty.
An OHbaby! Award is an important and prestigious award to receive and be proud of.
We are currently in the first stage of the awards where we ask the New Zealand public to nominate their favourites in eight categories (see below) . Nominations will close on 21st June, and the brands and/companies with the highest amount of nominations will go through to the voting round which commences on 7th July, with winning announcements to follow in mid September.

‘Nominate us’ promotions
The more nominations a brand/product/service gets the high the chance it has of getting through to the VOTING round of the awards. WE offer a nominations period so that we are able to ensure all new brands and products that enter the market during the two year gap between the awards are not missed. This is great as we have seen many changes over the years.
To be nominated and do well - Invite your friends and customers to nominate your brand/product/service in the awards and be specific about the categories you wish to be nominated for. Remember this is the first round - if you're nominated enough to get through to the voting round for your chance to win a Gold or silver award - it's beneficial to do this for voting as well.
