IWF 2018 Challengers Award Finalists

 
The purpose of the Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award ® is to encourage and promote the development of innovative new technology in the field of woodworking machinery, supplies, and services for the furniture, kitchen cabinets, architectural woodwork, store fixture, upholstery, or specialty and general wood product industries.

A panel of 10 distinguished judges, all industry professionals representing a broad cross-section of the industry, review and analyze each of the
72 entriesthat were submitted for the 2018 competition. The finalist judging takes place the day before IWF opens. On that Tuesday, the finalists perform live demonstrations for the panel of judges, who then make their final decisions on the most innovative product developments.

The Challengers Distinguished Achievement Award® culminates with a presentation held on the show floor on opening day during which the winners are announced and presented with the now familiar distinctive bronze sculpture.  Following are the 23 Finalists from the 2018 competition.
