Organizers of the Marine Equipment Trade Show announced that all DAME (Design Award METS) registration fees will go to the African Medical & Research Foundation Flying Doctors for the creation of accessible water supplies and sanitary facilities in Mtwara, Tanzania.

AMREF is Africa's biggest health organization and is dedicated to improving lives by undertaking cooperative ventures with local people to create sustainable improvement.

The DAME has been awarded annually for products in specific marine categories since 1991. An independent panel of judges assesses all entries. For the last three years, applicants have also contributed to worthy causes, as METS organizer Amsterdam RAI donates the registration fee for every product submitted to a designated charity.

The online application deadline for DAME 2009 is Sept.19. All products entered for the competition must be displayed at METS or the SuperYacht Pavilion in 2009 and comply with the rules of participation.

METS, which takes place Nov. 17-19 in Amsterdam, is the world's largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international recreational marine industry.
