Outdoor Kit - Got a Good Idea?

Building on the success of the 2008 venture Alpkit have just announced details of their coLAB Award09.

"The award promotes the exploration, innovation and design of products, systems and services in the adventure sports environment. It aims to encourage grass root design participation and to reward people with the passion for design by giving them the opportunity to show their idea to the outdoor community at a high profile event"

The competition opened on the 1st of Sept with a deadline of 1st Dec for entry submission. The nine shortlisted finalists to appear, along with their ideas, at the Outdoors Show (27 - 29 March 2009) for the final judging.

The finalist will have:

  • Free booth at OS 2009
  • Prize giving ceremony / Press Conference
  • Feature on the coLAB website
  • Complimentary Outdoor Show tickets for friends and family
  • Friday night dinner courtesy of Alpkit

And the three projects most highly rated by the shows visitors will each receive a trophy plus:

  • First Prize: £250 Alpkit products
  • Second Prize: £100 Alpkit products
  • Third Prize: £50 Alpkit products

The 2008 CoLab was a focal point for many Outdoors Show visitors giving maximum commercial exposure to CoLab entrants. Something otherwise difficult and costly to achieve at precisely the outdoor marketplace that is required.

So if you've got got a good outdoors idea, one that is screaming out for an audience, then here's your chance.
