The SDC Innovation Award is designed to recognise those at the pinnacle of achievement in coloration innovation. The 2014 award attracted considerable international interest and publicity, and an impressive range of entries from a wide range of sectors and 17 countries worldwide. There were two categories, one for large scale organisations, and the other for small/medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
