The Industrial Fabrics Foundation (IFF) announced the development of the Innovation Award, a new award program created to inspire imagination and innovation within the specialty fabrics industry.
Any company that has developed and manufactured an innovative product related to the industry is eligible in one of three award categories: fabric, hardware and machinery; end product; and process. Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts on their innovation, benefit to the industry, practicality and cost-effectiveness.
The winners will be announced at the IFAI Expo Americas, Oct. 27-29, in Orlando, Fla. In addition to $5,000 in prize money, the winners will be featured in Specialty Fabrics Review magazine.
The deadline to submit an entry is July 16. For more information and full award details, visit IFF.
