2006 Visionary Competition underway.

The 2006 Visionary Award will be presented at the Vision 2006 Consumer Products Conference, scheduled for January 15-18, 2006 at the Sheraton New Orleans.

Nominees for the competition will be reviewed by an INDA selection committee, and five finalists will be selected to make presentations at Vision 2006. Conference attendees will then decide on the recipient of the award.

Last January at the Vision 2005 Conference in New Orleans, BBA Fiberweb was presented with the Visionary Award for its Resolution Print Media product. The BBA product was selected by Vision attendees over five other finalists from such well-known consumer products companies as Gillette, Tyco Healthcare and Kimberly-Clark.

Other previous winners include Brillo Scrub 'n' Toss (2004), FMJ ChemBio for its Civilian Quick Escape Mask (2003) and Procter & Gamble's Swiffer cleaning system (2002).

To be considered for a Visionary Award, products must contain a nonwoven or use a nonwoven technology during manufacturing, must have been introduced in 2004 or 2005 and must not have been considered in any previous Visionary Award competition.

Products will be judged on their novel use of nonwovens technology as well as on their consumer and trade acceptance. Eligible consumer product categories include disposable diapers, feminine hygiene products, adult incontinence products, household wipes and home filters, among others.

Companies can nominate their own products. While any number of products can be nominated, only one product per company will be selected as a finalist.
