The nomination process for the second annual 2009 WOW Innovation Award opens on February 2 as the industry once again will recognize and honor the most innovative advances in technology and products in wipes.

Presented as part of the annual World of Wipes International Conference, the WOW Innovation Award will honor the most innovative advances within the entire wipe value chain, including raw materials and ingredients, roll goods, machinery, packaging and finished products.

Nominations are being accepted through April 1.

Organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, the World of Wipes International Conference is the premier global networking and educational conference for the entire business of wipes. It is scheduled for June 22-24, 2009 at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Atlanta, Ga.

For the first time, the WOW Innovation Award is being sponsored by Nonwovens Markets (www.risiinfo.com), the twice-monthly newsletter that covers developments in the nonwovens industry around the world. It analyzes complex industry issues, and offers insight into company strategies, market growth and technology trends.

The process and criteria for the 2009 WOW Innovation Award are simple:
1. The nominated product must be involved in some portion of the process and production of a wipe product. Competition is open to all wipes, including nonwoven, woven, knit, foam and other wipe technologies.

2. The product has to have been introduced to the trade or to consumers in 2008-09.

3. Nominations should consist of a short abstract of the nominated product and a product sample sent to Michael Jacobsen, INDA, 22 Paterson Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432; 201-612-6601. The abstract should be emailed to mjacobsen@inda.org.

4. Companies can nominate their own products. While any number of products can be nominated, only one product per company will be selected as a finalist.

Nominations will be judged on their contribution to the advance of wipes technology and finished product. Other criteria include innovation in meeting wipe value chain needs, commercial viability, creative use of technology and sustainability.

The nominees will be reviewed by an INDA selection committee and six finalists will be selected to make presentations at the World of Wipes International Conference in Atlanta. Conference attendees will then vote on the recipient of the award and the recipient will be announced on the final day of the Conference.
