About DAME Design Awards
The DAME Design Awards was launched in 1991 to promote design in all disciplines and to recognise the best-designed products at the METSTRADE Show. Its unique relevance in the global marine marketplace has grown in parallel with the explosion in awareness of design in the world around us, from cars and architecture to fashion and consumer goods. In making its judgements the jury seeks to emphasise the importance of design for all marine products, from function to aesthetics and from packaging to the end product. The DAME jury also considers the expected impact on the marine industry of entries, their suitability for intended purpose, the level of innovation, cost, ease of use or installation and environmental impact. Up to seven Category Winners and the Overall Winner will be chosen from the nominated entries. Products that the Jury considers to be exceptional, but which do not win the award in their category, will be given a Special Mention.”
The Specific Terms and Conditions for Participation DAME – Design Award 2021 competition will be available in June 2021. Should you have any questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The DAME Design Award Jury carefully assess entries for overall design, build quality, functionality, and use of materials. Other factors taken into account are originality, ergonomics, and price/quality ratio.

It was humbling to be recognised by the industry in this way and a great reward for all the hard work by the U SAFE team in creating a game-changing product.“Since winning the DAME Award, our global profile has increased in almost unmeasurable numbers.
