A call for METSTRADE show exhibitors to enter the DAME Design Awards has been made as the competition opens for 2017.

Run every year as part of the marine equipment-focussed METSTRADE show in Amsterdam, the awards focus on the art and science of design, from styling, functionality and innovation, through to ease of implementation, practicality of use and packaging.

The awards serve to highlight the role of design in retaining today’s boat buyers and attracting the next generation. The entries are judged by a panel of top naval architects, boat, interior and industrial designers, plus user experts.

Nominated entries are put on display at RAI Amsterdam-organised METSTRADE, followed by a final selection of seven category winners and the eventual DAME Award overall winner.

After receiving the overall DAME Award last year for his company's Cruise FP models, Torqeedo GmbH co-founder and CEO, Dr Christoph Ballin, stated: “We are absolutely thrilled to be the overall winner of the DAME Award for the second time. Torqeedo is delighted to see the coming of age for electric mobility in the marine industry and is proud to be a driver in this business.”

Entries can be made until 19 September.
