CAMX Now Accepting Entries for 2017 CAMX Award

The deadline to submit an entry for the 2017 CAMX Award recognizing Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation is May 15


April 18, 2017 (Orlando, Fla.) CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo is now accepting entries for the fourth annual CAMX Award, sponsored by Ashland. The deadline for submission is May 15. Click here to submit your entry today.


The CAMX Award recognizes two cutting-edge innovations that will significantly impact composites and advanced materials. The award is divided into two categories – Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation.


“These game-changing composite applications truly embody the spirit of CAMX and the industry itself,” said Tom Dobbins, ACMA President. “Every year, I’m inspired by our industry’s ability to create amazing products that challenge the status quo in a wide range of markets.”


As two distinct honors, the Combined Strength Award acknowledges a product that incorporates composites materials that solves a problem through teamwork and collaboration, and the Unsurpassed Innovation Award celebrates a product with a design that incorporates low-cost materials for high-volume applications that can change the outlook of a particular market. Past winners have changed the way 3-D printing, automotive, aerospace and architecture.


“The CAMX Award is a can’t-miss opportunity for companies to stand out as leaders and to raise the bar for innovation in composites and advanced materials,” said Gregg Balko, SAMPE CEO. “Our award winners have a permanent place in composites history.”


The winning entries will be presented during the General Session at CAMX – Tuesday, September 12 at the Orange County Convention Center. To see the entries in person, go to the award pavilion (booth M98) of the Exhibit Hall. For more information, go to
