Announcing the 2014 IAPD Plastics Application Design Competition

The inaugural IAPD Plastics Application Design Competition was so popular in 2013 that we are bringing it back in 2014. Thanks to feedback we received last year, we’ve made some exciting changes:

  • Two divisions, Corporate and Collegiate
  • More valuable prizes

Multiple entries from companies and/or schools are universities are permitted. Applications submitted in 2013 that did not win are eligible to enter again this year. Designs selected as finalists in 2013 are not eligible for re-entry, although the companies or academic teams that submitted those designs may submit other projects for consideration this year.

Three finalists from each division, Corporate and Collegiate, will be selected by an independent panel of experts to give a 10-minute presentation on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, IL, USA.

See a selection of videos sent with the 2013 applications here.
