Understanding the logos

Finder Gold Award

Finder's gold and silver logos

These logos recognise the best performing product in each category. We gather multiple data points on most products each month or quarter, compare each metric to the rest of the market, and apply a score using Finder's Dynamic Scoring System. These scores are then weighted based on the importance of each feature and the recency of the measurement. Award winners receive a gold logo and highly commended brands receive a silver logo. Finder Innovation Awards also uses the gold and silver logos.
Finder Blue and Gold Award

Finder's blue and gold logos

Finder blue and gold logos are for customer satisfaction awards, like the Finder Retail Awards program. We ask thousands of Aussies who have bought and used products and services to rate brands based on their experience across a number of areas, like value for money and performance. Logos are awarded on a brand level in a specific product category, rather than for individual products. Winners receive a blue and gold award, while finalists receive a blue and silver logo.
Finder Green Award

Finder's green logo

These logos recognise businesses that are sustainability leaders in their categories. These companies are doing their bit to protect the planet with initiatives to reduce emissions, provide sustainable finance options and move towards zero-waste. Winners for these awards are selected based on broad environmental metrics including greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy usage and waste avoiding landfill. The Finder Green Awards also recognise the people behind the best green initiatives.
