13TH ANNUAL CHOICE
4 OCTOBER 2018
Presenting the 2016 Shonky Awards! From camel milk to credit cards, we've scoured the country looking for the dodgiest health claims, the shiftiest marketing tactics, and the downright worst products for sale.
To qualify for this prestigious award, a product must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Flaws, faults or failed a standard
- Lack of transparency
- False claims or broken promises
- Consumer detriment or confusion
- Poor value for money
- Has the propensity to outrage or amuse
The Shonky Awards name and shame the worst goods and services sold in Australia. Our goal is to expose the ways businesses lie to, trick and rip off consumers, and how they weasel around the standards in place to protect Australian consumers.
