The Competition

janetJanet Wood was the co-founder of Datesand Ltd and the mother of current owner Jonathon.

Janet sadly passed away in 2010 and in her memory we have decided to launch an annual innovation award.

Datesand would like to invite animal technicians and industry professionals to design a

product that will then be marketed and sold within the biomedical science industry.

How it will work

Anyone wishing to enter must complete this application pack and submit it with any

supporting documents such as a description and drawing; to: jwiaward@datesand.com

Once all the applications are in a team judges will look at all entries and select the 10 best

designs that they feel will be best received by the industry and are the most viable.

These 10 will then be judged by an independent panel of industry professionals and

Datesand management staff. From these 10 the judges will choose 3 finalists.

The final designs will be taken to the IAT Congress 2019 where visitors to the Datesand

stand will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite design.

The overall winner will be announced at the close of congress and the winner (if not there)

will be notied.
