IWF has received 92 submissions for its IWF 2024 Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award competition.
Of the 92 contestants, 20 finalists will be announced on June 20.
The IWF Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award is a world-renowned competition recognizing companies demonstrating exemplary achievement in the development of products, services, or manufacturing technologies and techniques created to advance the industry. A panel of nine judges—all recognized professionals drawn from across the industry landscape—review and analyze each entry.
From the full field of contestants, 20 finalists are selected to perform live demonstrations for judges' review on the day preceding the show opening. Judges render final decisions to select winners based on demonstration outcomes.
Seven winners will be announced on IWF 2024 opening day, Tuesday, August 6. The finalists will be on display in The Challengers Award Gallery throughout the duration of the show.
