Are there any noteworthy new developments in your company? Are you proud of your efficient production processes? Have any fresh, leading-edge designs?

Then you’re a candidate for the EUROPEAN ALUMINIUM AWARD 2016. Presented for the 10th time, the most important prize of the aluminium industry honours the sector’s innovations. The Award Ceremony will take place at ALUMINIUM 2016 in Düsseldorf on 29 November. The application deadline is 15 July 2016.

Awards will be presented in the categories Automotive, Transportation (air, rail, road, water), Architecture & Construction, Production Techniques, Tools & Machinery and Design & Lifestyle (lighting & interior, sports & leisure, computers & electronics, art & fashion). In addition, the Young Talents Award for young designers and engineers aged 30 or under will be presented again, as well.

An international jury of experts will select the nominees and winners. In the Design & Lifestyle segment, which is aimed primarily at attracting consumer lifestyle products, the winner will be selected by the visitors of the ALUMINIUM trade fair.

Several changes will be introduced this year, including the further internationalisation of the award. From now on, it will no longer be limited to the European market but recognise products from around the world. Throughout the trade fair, all submitted products will be presented at the Award Pavilion in Hall 10, where ALUMINIUM visitors also will be able to examine the nominated products.

The EUROPEAN ALUMINIUM AWARD is an initiative by the Dutch Aluminium Centrum in cooperation with the industry associations European Aluminium and GDA (German Confederation of the Aluminium Industry) as well as ALUMINIUM 2016.

Aluminium International Today is proud to be the International Media Partner for these awards.
