The Lagazuoi Winning Ideas Mountain Awards, now in their second edition, renew the commitment to put in the limelight far-sighted projects and progressive ideas for a sustainable future.
The WIMA-Awards were conceived with the aim of recounting the mountains of today and tomorrow, bringing out concrete examples of creativity, innovation and originality.
The liveliness, determination and inventiveness of those who live or work in and for the mountains continuously develop "profitable" solutions in terms of materials and technologies, eno-gastronomic productions as well as for the hospitality industry.
The 2021 edition of the Winning Ideas Mountain Awards is divided into four categories again.
The following 3 categories are confirmed:
• mountain clothing and mountain equipment
• innovative and sustainable mountain tourism
• digital innovation & apps
The novelty is:
• mountain gastronomy industry, to enhance innovative methods of production and / or transformation of raw materials, but also new approaches to marketing and commercialization of the resources.
There are also changes in the participation modalities:
not only candidates nominated by industry experts and journalists and chosen by the organisers, but also those who submit their own candidacy on the WIMA website, will be eligible for selection.
The jury is made up of university students from the specific areas of expertise and will evaluate the selected projects under the supervision of a reference professor.
The deadline for the selection is Monday 30th November at midnight.
