The Made in Italy Awards recognize Italian companies and individuals, each in their own sector, that have made a significant contribution to promoting and strengthening the image of Made in Italy and Italian prestige around the world. Industrial designers, culinary geniuses, successful companies, fashion brands, artists… These are only a few of thousands Italian ‘Ambassadors’ who contribute everyday to Italy’s prestigious image, and have transformed ‘Made in Italy’ in a world-renowned trademark of quality, refinement and good taste. Every year, an international jury,  chosen among the  top professionals in their fields, as well as the general public, examines all the nominations and vote to identify the most important Made in Italy ‘ambassadors’. The Awards include 8 different categories that represent areas where Italy reputation is most admired and recognized. The participants can submit their application by completing the Nomination Form. The panel of judges reserves the right to nominate additional companies or personalities deemed worthy of the award. This year the Awards ceremony will take place in New York during the September fashion week, at the presence of the vast and influential audience, and the national and international media.
