How to win the 3D Printing Industry Awards?

We’ve updated the selection process for 2023. As always, the most informed people in 3D printing, our readers, will first help select nominations and then vote on the winners. Joining the process for the first time this year are the 3D Printing Industry Expert Committees. Each committee comprises subject matter experts who will meet to nominate, discuss, and select the 3D Printing Industry Awards winners in conjunction with the public vote. Read more about the 3D printing experts that will help select winners.

We will be publishing more about the members of these panels in the run-up to the awards. We also have several spots on the expert committees open, you can apply here.

Readers can make nominations in one or more of the award categories using the nominations form in this article. There are no restrictions on nominations, you may nominate the company you work for or even founded. The results of the nomination stage will be used to produce the shortlists.

Supporting Charity

Aside from an opportunity to celebrate excellence in our sector, the 3D Printing Industry Awards also support good causes. In 2022, we donated to 3D Sierra Leone – a charity using 3D printing to bring life-changing prosthetics to those in the West African nation.

The 2023 3D Printing Industry Awards charity of choice will be the Sanjay Mortimer Foundation (SMF). SMF was established to continue the legacy of the E3D co-founder and support those with neurodivergent minds to fulfill their potential in the engineering world.
