DAME Award opens for entries
Entries have opened for the annual DAME Design Award, organised in conjunction with the METSTRADE Show.
Participation open to manufacturers and authorised suppliers who are registered as exhibitors or co-exhibitors at the 2019 show.
The winner of last year’s DAME Award was Triskel Marine’s Integrel generator replacement system with MD Ken Wittamore never dreaming the product would be chosen.
“Winning the DAME Award was the pinnacle of ten years’ work for us and a total, delightful surprise,” he said.
“Everyone knows of the Award, many aspire to win it but we never dreamt that we would actually bring home the prize.
“Since then we have received hundreds of serious enquiries from around the world. We would not be in such a good place without METSTRADE.”
Entries are judged by an international panel of boat, interior and industrial designers together with user experts with emphasis on the art and science of equipment design in all aspects, from styling, functionality and innovation, through to integration, practicality of use and presentation.
The applications window will remain open for two months until 24 September.
