The Design Award METS is now accepting entries.

METS/SYP organizer Amsterdam RAI invites this year’s exhibitors to enter their most innovative designs to be judged by an independent, international jury. The winner of the award will be announced Nov. 15, the first day of METS.

Exhibitors wishing to submit products for DAME 2011 should complete the online application by Sept. 20.

The jury for the DAME will place more emphasis on the green benefits of every product it assesses, where applicable, organizers said. This new approach is reflected in the refreshed green logo that will tie DAME permanently to a concept of best environmental manufacturing and operational practices with sustainable design.

All products entered for the competition must be displayed at METS or the SuperYacht Pavilion in 2011 and comply with the standard terms and conditions of participation.

The charity Sailing Kids benefits from the entry fees for this year’s awards program. Sailing Kids is a Netherlands-based charity that organizes sailing holidays for seriously ill children and their families.

Sailing Kids, which is entirely funded by sponsorships and donations, arranges free six-day trips aboard either a rented vintage schooner or a clipper. In addition to offering optional on-board activities and full catering, the charity provides a fully qualified volunteer medical team to care for the seriously or chronically ill children on board.
