Narcissus Awards 2005
New Age Retailer Magazine
The Narcissus Awards: The Best in Body, Mind, and Spirit debuted last year. In 2005, more than 4,500 products were submitted for review consideration in our pages, and more than 500 products were selected for review by our independent reviewers. Out of these hundreds and thousands, the editors of New Age Retailer have selected 30 Narcissus Award finalists the best products the New Age has to offer.
To describe the process: Our selection criteria focused solely on the published reviews by our independent reviewers. Ten finalists were selected in each of three categories: books, giftware, and music. Unlike other award programs in our marketplace, Narcissus Award nominees pay no fee for consideration. In fact, all products reviewed in a given year are eligible for the awards. Of course, our independent review-consideration process continues to be free for wholesalers. We believe producers of great body/mind/spirit products deserve honest, dignified recognition, and we hope the Narcissus Awards serve to support and promote the specific products honored, the artists, authors, and companies that created them, and the New Age industry as a whole.
