ADF accepts Innovation Awards entries
The Aerosol & Dispensing Forum (ADF) is accepting entries from brands and suppliers for its Innovation Awards. Winners will be announced at the trade show on 6 September, which runs through to 7 September at The Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan, New York.
“We are excited to be able to spotlight breakthrough technologies and cutting edge design through the Innovation Awards,” said Christelle Anya, show director. “We encourage brands to take advantage of this opportunity to be recognised by their peers.”
The brand focused awards are designed to showcase packaging and dispensing innovations launched on the market between 1 June 2016 to 1 June 2017, and recognise outstanding achievements in technological and creative innovations in aerosol and dispensing.
An independent jury of packaging experts from leading brands, universities, organisations as well as the media will oversee the selection process during a private meeting which will be held at Pratt Institute’s Manhattan campus.
Entries will be judged on the following criteria: opening of a new market; unique design (shape and decoration); ergonomy, gesture, new service; innovation: technical, transformation, process; environment / sustainability / eco-conception; and/or formulation / spray.

For show attendees, the Innovation Awards Ceremony, which includes a short presentation from the winners, offers show attendees the opportunity to learn more about what made the winning entries so innovative and gain inspiration to incorporate into their own projects.
