Entries for each category, (Ferrous, HIP, MIM and AM), will be judged on a strictly confidential basis by a multinational panel of experts who will evaluate each submission according to the following criteria:
- 35% - How do you rate this component in terms of excellence in exploiting PM or in terms of novelty, surpassing borders or bringing new ideas into practice?
- 25% - To what extent is the PM component described in the entry expected to provide cost savings and/or improved quality?
- 25% - How well is the entry prepared? (Description of component, inclusion of diagrams, photographs and other illustrations.)
- 15% - To what extent is the entry expected to stimulate further usage of PM materials and technology?
