Shonkys 2015

We're celebrating 10 years of Shonky Awards ... and what a shonky thing that is. Since 2006, we've given out more than 70 awards to companies that have flouted consumer protection laws, sold products that were faulty by design, and shown blatant disregard for consumer safety.

Ten years on, it should be getting harder for us to find products and services that are deserving of Shonky shame, yet in 2015 we faced the opposite problem, with an oversupply of lemons giving us a tough job whittling down the nominations.

It's time once again to roll out the yellow carpet, and welcome the latest inductees into the Shonky Hall of Shame
