Manufacturers and designers are invited to enter their products focusing on the topic of the outdoors in the OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2009 during this year’s OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen (July 16 to 19, 2009). The deadline for registrations is June 15, 2009.

Entries will be accepted in the following categories: Apparel/Helmets/Shoes, Backpacks/Travel luggage, Mountain-climbing equipment, Camping equipment, Sleeping bags and Accessories. The following two categories are brand-new: products with high ecological and sustainable value and material innovations. The “Concepts” category is restricted to students who would like to submit experimental drafts of yet to be realized products and studies. Participation for students is free of charge.

This year’s jury of experts welcomes the following members: Frank Wacker (Motor Presse Stuttgart, Stuttgart/D), Mark Held (European Outdoor Group, Zug/CH), Gregor Baer (Produktdesigner Indigo/Bogner, Munich/D) and Olaf Wittayer (Sport 2000 – die Outdoorprofis, Limburg/D). Two more jurors have yet to be nominated. Among the prizewinners determined during the jury session on July 2, 2009, the jury will also name additional “GOLD award winners” for the most innovative products. The winners of these special awards will not be announced until the Awards Ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on July 16 during the show in Friedrichshafen. All the winning products will be on display during the OutDoor Show from July 16 to 19.

The “OutDoor Celebrity of the Year” will also be selected once again this year – this award goes to a personality who has made a special contribution to the topic of the outdoors and will be awarded by a panel of top international trade journalists. Rolf G. Schmid, president of the European Outdoor Group and CEO of the Mammut Sports Group, was voted “OutDoor Celebrity of the Year” in 2008.

Online registration is available and further information ready to download at www.ifdesign.de (organized by iF).
