VISION Award 2018: Call for visionaries

Innovative companies still have the chance to submit machine vision developments until 20 July

The closing date for submissions to the VISION Award 2018 is 20 July 2018. Warren Clark, Managing Director of Imaging and Machine Vision Europe and award sponsor, is already looking forward to the submissions: "We are very proud to continue our association with innovation in the industry as sponsor of the VISION Award. Our platform supports and celebrates all that is new and exciting in this vibrant market."


The jury of experts traditionally draws up a short list of the most interesting developments, which are published on the VISION website and featured in an abridged version in the VISION catalogue. The winner of the award, which is worth € 5,000, also has the opportunity to present themselves and their innovation at the official VISION 2018 press conference.

The VISION Award will be presented for the 23rd time at VISION 2018 in November, and thus looks back on a tradition that is almost as long as the world's leading machine vision trade fair itself. "The award reflects the great innovative power and increasing relevance of the machine vision sector - it pays tribute to visionary developments that make lasting impression on industry," says Florian Niethammer, Project Manager of VISION, the world's leading machine vision trade fair.
