The 2013 IAPD Design Competition presents a unique opportunity for companies, individuals and universities to showcase their innovative use of plastics in different applications and tell their stories on a scale that may not otherwise be available.
This event will be held during the 57th IAPD Annual Convention & Plastics Showcase September 30–October 2, 2013 in Miami, FL, USA.
IAPD will invite various media outlets to the 2013 IAPD Plastics Application Design Competition where three finalists selected to present their design will receive exclusive coverage such as one-on-one facetime for interviews and pre and post-convention press releases.
Three finalists will be highlighted in a pre-convention half-page feature in The IAPD Magazine, in post-convention coverage in IAPD communications and will receive a video of their presentation at the 2013 IAPD Plastics Application Design Competition. The winner’s story will be retold throughout the year in IAPD publications and marketing campaigns.
- The first place winner will receive a prize package valued at $1,000
- The second place winner will receive a prize package valued at $500
- The third place winner will receive a prize package valued at $250
The competition is open to all companies, individuals or universities. An independent design review board has selected the top three finalists from the applications received to present their designs at a special luncheon on October 2 for delegates and press. Those three finalists are: Cope Plastics, Inc.; Nonspec/University of Massachusetts Lowell/Total Plastics, Inc.; and Vycom.
The first, second and third place winners will be announced at a reception at the end of the Plastics Showcase, which immediately follows the luncheon.
