These lucky finalists are heading to Byron Bay, a destination known for its stunning beaches, excellent surf breaks, and hippie hospitality — and the town’s locals are all about sustainable living, both for themselves and the land. That’s something Beam Suntory feels so strongly about — in continuation of Trash Tiki and minimal waste, second use recipes — that we thought it was the perfect location (pun intended) . The finalists brief is designed to challenge their thinking based on this, as well as sustainability from within and personal health.

The Grand Final takes place between May 14th to the 17th – who will win?
