The selection process of winners of the prestigious WTN Awards is quite long and thorough. Every year, the 1000+ existing members of the WTN propose a list of individuals and corporations that they consider worthy of recognition for innovation excellence.

The awards are in two major categories: Individuals (in 20 sub-categories) and Companies/ Organisations (in 10 sub-categories). The sub-categories include fields such as Arts, Law, Design, IT, Space, Environment, Materials, etc…

 

The first stage of the process is the definition of the list of nominees. PowerCoat® came under the “Materials” sub-category and the Companies/ Organisations category. Fellow nominees included:

During the next stage of the process, a more in-depth analysis is carried out by members of the WTN. For this, each nominee is asked to prepare more comprehensive data to support their nomination. At the end of this process, a “Finalist” list is issued comprising 5 or 6 companies/ individuals. The Finalist in the Materials/ Companies category were:
