Seventeen countries to participate in SDC Colour Innovation Award

Apr '08
The finalists for this year's SDC Colour Innovation Award, the fifth biennial competition of its type run by the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC), have now been announced. An unprecedented number of entries were received from 17 countries across the globe, including for the first time entries from Brazil, Italy and Slovenia, with the number of entries received from the USA being the second highest after the UK.

• International Colour Competition Attracts Record Breaking Entry
• SDC Announces Finalists' Names

Entries were invited from seven sectors: science & technology, manufacturing & retailing and – for the first time – design, education & media. All entries offered a unique contribution to colour and focused on innovations right across the spectrum, including incorporating colour-change ink and electronics into textiles, the novel coloration of plastics and leather, the innovative use of coloured lights, the study of colour in nature leading to applications development for use in cosmetics, and varying educational approaches to colour, from a cross-disciplinary approach to a resource for historians and conservators.

The judging of this competition took place earlier this month with the expert contributions of: Adrian Abel (pigment specialist), Wayne Hemingway (designer), Dr Ian Holme (author and lecturer), Prof. David Lewis (dye chemist), Janet Robinson (fabric technologist) and Sue Williams (colour consultant). The three finalists selected by the judges are:
