Nominations Now Open For 2013 World Of Wipes Innovation Award™

CARY, N.C. — March 26, 2013 — Nominations are open for the 2013 World of Wipes Innovation Award. The World of Wipes Innovation Award will recognize and reward innovation within the entire wipes value chain that utilizes nonwoven fabrics in a way that expands the usage of nonwovens.

Nominated products should demonstrate advancements in one or more of the following categories:

    * Creativity (Was there imaginative skill used to create a solution to a known problem?)
    * Novelty of approach (Is the method or thought process used to create the product new?)
    * Uniqueness (Is this the only product of its type in the marketplace?)
    * Technical sophistication (Does the product/process use nonwoven technology in an intellectually elegant manner?)

Nominees could come from industries such as raw materials, roll goods, machinery, converting, packaging, lotions, active ingredients, binders, additives and end products. Finalists will present their innovation to the industry at WOW 2013, June 19.

Voting shall be weighted equally across three voting bodies: the Technical Advisory Board (TAB), the WOW Conference Committee and the WOW conference attendees.  Each group shall vote separately and be given equal weight in the final determination of the award winner. Once the weighted votes have been tabulated onsite, the winner will be announced during the scheduled conference hours.

The deadline for nominations is April 29.

Organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, the annual World of Wipes (WOW) International Conference, will be held June 17-20, 2013 at the Hotel InterContinental Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, and will focus exclusively on the business, technology and regional trends of wipes - from raw materials to substrates to converting and end-use applications - during three days of presentations and business.

Anyone may nominate a wipes-related product for consideration for the 2013 Award. To nominate a product, send a short abstract describing the innovation along with a product sample to Helena Lee, Suite 115, 1100 Crescent Green, Cary, NC 27518; hlee@inda.org.
