SMC-BMC

The SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD is an international Design Competition, organized by the EUROPEAN ALLIANCE for SMC BMC. This competition recognizes and promotes design excellence by Design students or Young Design professionals while using SMC and BMC advanced materials in their designs.

The SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD is intended to reinforce that SMC and BMC are innovative, versatile, cost effective and safe materials, used in products that make significant beneficial contributions to individual consumers and to society. Innovations entered into the SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD will be judged by an independent Jury with expert members from both the Design community and the Composites industry.

The SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD offers you an opportunity to promote your SMC BMC related innovation. The SMC BMC DESIGN AWARD is designed to boost innovation by providing winners with support for fine-tuning their designs, business plans and market positioning, manufacturing-ability and ultimately help bring their innovations to market.
