The full list of winners and highly commended at this year’s Great Outdoors Awards

The great and the good of the UK outdoors have been unveiled following our annual awards ceremony that was attended by brands, campaigners, personalities, writers and publicans.

There were two sections to the awards. In the first section, all of those who were recognised were chosen by the public alone after an open nomination period and then a voting process.

The second section was our Gear of the Year Awards, in which the winners and highly commended brands were chosen by our judging panel on which sat Chris Townsend, Judy Armstrong, Mike Parsons, Emily Rodway and Will Renwick.
