Launched in 2009, the Innovators Award proved to be a welcomed addition to the APP Exposition.
The Innovators Award program is a chance for Vendors and Attendees alike to showcase new and innovative designs. Whether it is a single item showpiece, an introduction to a new line, or a new idea an amateur jeweler has developed – we welcome your submissions!
If the submission comes from someone other than a (paid) full conference pass Attendee, or a Vendor (with a booth on the floor) – there is a submission fee of $300.00.
The vendor or attendee who wins an Innovator of the Year award, in addition to the formal recognition of their contribution will be given an interview in the Point.
Each Vendor/Attendee is allowed one entry into each of the two categories: Technical Innovation & Creative Innovation.
Vendors/Attendees will need to fill out a descriptive form which you can get from the APP Office. Submission of this form will be the confirmation of the person’s participation. The confirmation must be received by June 1st with no exceptions. This form will include creator’s name; whether it is submitted as a technical or creative innovation; materials used; name of design, piece, or product. This information will be used to fill out the display tag(s) for the item(s). Participants will need to bring their items to the APP Raffle/Auction Booth – before the floor opens on Tues June 19th. It is not the responsibility of the APP to collect the item from the Participant.
Award Ballots will be issued at the time of registration with each individual badge. Voting will be allowed by anyone who is issued a badge. A ballot box will be located by the display and the ballots tallied at 3pm on Thursday; the winner(s) will be announced at the Banquet Dinner.
*Please note the silent auction portion of this program has been suspended for 2012.
