Eager to review and consider your submissions are judges Clare Goldsberry, senior editor of Modern Plastics Worldwide; Robert Neilley, principal of RN Marketing; and myself Yolanda Simonsis, president and editorial director of Paper, Film & Foil Converter (PFFC), a YTC Media Inc. property.For past PFFC coverage of these competitions, click here.
For as many judging panels on which I've participated, I'm amazed more companies don't seek this route to promote their innovative ideas. Websites and magazines pick up these stories from industry associations to give the submitting companies free press, but what's nicer is that well deserved recognition is given for all the hard work a company's employees put into developing the new idea for its benefit!
Give someone a pat on the back! Start by entering the IMDA Competition before June 30th.
