Manufacturers participating in the Special Award Ergonomics agree to exhibit their submitted products at the next Insights-X Online event if they win the award or are nominated. They will be offered the opportunity to participate free of charge. Products can only be registered if they have not been exhibited or sold in their current form on the markets or elsewhere before 2020.
Only fully finished products can be entered. The products have to be available for delivery from no later than 1 May 2021.
Product drawings or non-working samples are not admissible for the competition. Entries will be treated in strict confidence. Spielwarenmesse eG will announce the nominated products in October 2020 approximately one week before the Insights-X Online platform goes live. The announcement of the winners and the award presentation takes place during the Online Live Event on the Insights-X Online platform.
The number of entries from one company is limited to three products.
All shipping and customs charges must be paid by the company entering. The product must be delivered free house, after receiving the sending request.
The product must be received by the IGR – Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie - in a fully assembled and working state. Necessary additions, e.g. batteries, have to be included.
Unfortunately, it is not possible for Spielwarenmesse eG and the IGR to return the submitted products. You can pick up one of the two submitted products from 19.10.-30.11.20 at Spielwarenmesse eG, Frauke Seitz, Herderstraße 7, 90427 Nürnberg. When collecting, a document for identification (e.g. identity card) must be presented.
Uncollected products become the property of Spielwarenmesse® after the competition is over and will be donated if necessary.
The jury will also test the product for its operability and ergonomic performance. The IGR and Spielwarenmesse eG accept no liability for any damage that may occur.
The IGR and Spielwarenmesse eG cannot return non-winning products. These may be collected from the IGR in Nuremberg. You will be informed of the place and time of collection in good time.
The IGR and Spielwarenmesse eG, as well as any service providers commissioned by them, assume no liability for loss or damage to products caused by them or their employees, except in cases of intent or gross negligence. Liability is limited to the purchase price of the product. The IGR and Spielwarenmesse eG are not liable for loss or damage caused by third parties.
The winners agree to use the Special Award Ergonomics logo on the product packaging.
