The entry period for the DAME 2021 Design Awards is now open to Metstrade exhibitors and co-exhibitors. The show is scheduled for Nov. 16-18 at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The DAME program resumes its original format this year, with seven categories focused on such criteria as design, styling, functionality, innovation, integration, practicality, and price and performance, according to a statement from show organizers.
This year, entrants will be required to submit a life-cycle statement that addresses the impact the product has on the environment. Based on this, the jury will select a product to receive an Environmental Design Winner certificate.
DAME entry fees ($176 this year) are donated to nonprofit charities related to the marine industry. This year’s proceeds will benefit the Blue Marine Foundation, which addresses sustainable fishing practices, the creation of marine reserves and habitat restoration.
Entries can be submitted through Sept. 17. Click here for more information.
