Nomination process for Visionary Award now opens to nonwovens industries

The nomination process for the prestigious 2010 Visionary Award is now open to the global nonwovens and consumer products industries.

INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, which sponsors the annual award, will be accepting nominations through September 1. Now in its ninth year, the award recognizes consumer end products that utilize nonwoven fabrics or employ nonwoven technology during their manufacturing process.

The 2010 Visionary Award will be presented at the Vision 2010 Consumer Products Conference, January 20-22, 2010, which will once again be held at the Sheraton Canal Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The process and criteria for the 2010 Visionary Award are simple:
1. The finished consumer end product must contain a nonwoven fabric or utilize a nonwoven technology during its manufacturing process.

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

3. The product can not have been selected as a finalist in any previous Visionary Award competition.

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.

Products will be judged on their novel use of nonwoven technology, as well as on their consumer and trade acceptance. Eligible consumer product categories include disposable diapers, feminine hygiene products, adult incontinence products, household wipes and home filters, among others.

The nominees will be reviewed by an INDA selection committee and finalists will be selected to make presentations at the Vision 2010 Consumer Products Conference. Conference attendees will then vote on the recipient of the award and the recipient is announced on the final day of the Vision 2010 Consumer Products Conference.

Last January at the Vision 2009 Conference in New Orleans, the Disruptor nonwoven water filter media from Ahlstrom was named the recipient of the 2009 Visionary Award. Other previous recipients of the coveted Visionary Award include Kimberly-Clark's SpaSensials spa treatment (2008); Tyco Swim Pants (2007); Chicopee's Disaster Relief Blanket (2006); Fiberweb's Resolution Print Media (2005); Church & Dwight's Brillo Scrub 'n' Toss (2004); FMJ ChemBio's Civilian Quick Escape Mask (2003); and Procter & Gamble's Swiffer (2002).

To nominate a product, email an explanation of the product to Michael Jacobsen, Visionary Awards coordinator, at mjacobsen@inda.org. Samples of the product should also be sent to Michael Jacobsen, INDA, 22 Paterson Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432 USA.
