At NPE2012, products or parts entered into the competition will be displayed in a prominent area of the OCCC's South Building dubbed Technology Central. An awards reception and ceremony will take place during NPE2012 on Tuesday evening, April 3. At the ceremony, winners, along with their supply chain contributors will be recognized and honored.[image_1_right]All awards other than the Peoples Choice will be based on the decisions of judges selected by SPI for their knowledge of plastics and design. Entries can be submitted in any of eighteen end-use market categories, from agriculture to transportation. There will be an award for the winning product in each category, a grand award for the most innovative part or product in the competition as a whole, awards honoring advances in sustainability, and other special awards. In addition, a separate panel of judges chosen by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) will select the winner of an award co-sponsored by the IDSA and the industry newspaper "Plastics News".Details on the IPDC can be found at www.plasticsdesign.org.
