Winners of the 2016 Fabrication Excellence Awards were announced at Marine Fabricators Conference, held at the Clearwater Beach Marriott Resort Suites on Sand Key in Clearwater, Fla., Jan. 16-18, 2015.

Sponsored by the Marine Fabricators Association (MFA), the program has recognized excellence in design and craftsmanship in the marine industry. The goal of the awards is to promote awareness of the marine fabrics used in marine products and applications ranging in size and type.

A total of 109 entries were submitted to 11 categories. Winners were selected based on complexity, design, workmanship, uniqueness, and function. Entries were judged by a panel of certified Marine Fabric Craftsman.

All entries receive prominent recognition at the Marine Fabricators Conference. Entrants receive additional publicity through coverage in the Marine Fabricator magazine and on the MFA website and in future MFA marketing materials.
