Other factors taken into account are originality, ergonomics and price/quality ratio.
The jury presented the overall DAME award to the Torqeedo Cruise FP Models.
Category nominees receive a great deal of exposure while the eventual DAME winner becomes highly renowned within its field.
Each year the registration fee for the DAME is donated to a charity. Last year the proceeds for entering the DAME Award were donated to the AMREF project called ‘A healthy future for girls in Kilindi’. Registration to qualify for the 2017 edition of the award is now open.
