New Product Contest

Put the spotlight on your new product!

The deadline for the 2019 New Product Contest has passed and applications are no longer being accepted.

Sponsored by Hunter Industries Inc.

Seeing new products, technologies and services is a top priority for the majority of attendees at the Irrigation Show. Open only to exhibitors, the new product contest is a unique opportunity to

  • reach thousands of attendees on the show floor.
  • highlight new products and services.
  • enhance your company’s reputation for innovation.

Applications will be accepted in the following categories: 

  • agriculture irrigation
  • golf irrigation
  • landscape irrigation
  • landscape lighting
  • specialty agriculture irrigation*
  • specialty landscape irrigation*

Category Requirements

Products submitted for acceptance in the agriculture irrigation, golf irrigation and landscape irrigation categories must be an integral part of an irrigation system in order to deliver, disperse or manage water for irrigation. There must be at least three entries from different manufacturers to create a category.

*The specialty categories are for products that are not an integral part of an irrigation system or landscape lighting system. If there are three or more products that can make a unique category, applicants will be notified.

Choosing the Winners

Products will be evaluated by a panel of judges based on innovative and/or “changed-for-the-better” qualities; increased or improved irrigation, water or energy efficiency; ease of use; cost benefits; time savings and design quality. Attendees are welcome to listen to the product creator present to the expert judges during the new product contest presentations. First-place winners will be announced Thursday, Dec. 5, during the IA general session.

One winner in each category will receive

  • an award suitable for display.
  • free publicity to industry media.
  • customized new product contest logo artwork for company marketing.
