METS jury nominates design award finalists

The Design Award METS jury nominated 63 products for this year's awards, which will be presented Nov. 16 during the Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam.

Organizers said 132 products were entered in this year's competition. Entries were received from 19 countries, with nominees coming from 13.

"On this 20th anniversary, I was delighted to see the number of new companies to METS that had also put products up for these awards among the 132 entries. One can see the tremendous effort that the nominees have put into identifying new product opportunities and then ensuring that these designs meet the ever more demanding customer expectations," DAME awards jury chairman Bill Dixon said in a statement.

Products were judged on their suitability, originality, design and construction. Other important factors, such as overall consumer appeal, impact on the marine industry, cost-effectiveness and ease of use also were evaluated during the daylong judging process.
