Partners Rapid News Publications and Women in 3D Printing have announced the four finalists for their new Women in 3D Printing Innovator Award.

The award is in its inaugural year and will recognise women in the 3D printing sector that demonstrate outstanding innovation and represent the pinnacle of success. It aims to shine a spotlight on the female innovators who are leading the charge in the world of design-to-manufacturing.

The finalists are the latest female trail blazers in their field and were selected from a widely intellectual and competitive pool of candidates by Women in 3D Printing’s international network of ambassadors.

Here are the final 4:

Laura Gilmour, Global Medical Business Development Manager, EOS

Melanie Lang, Co-Founder & CEO, Formalloy

Wai Yee Yeong, Associate Professor, Nanyang Technological University

Katherine Prescott, Co-Founder, Free D

The ground-breaking, new award was the brain child of Rapid News Publications and Woman in 3D Printing, who decided to join forces on a mission to promote and spotlight leading female innovators in the world of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.

The winner will be unveiled at the much-anticipated TCT Awards, the world's most recognised and regarded awards ceremony for the design-to manufacture industry.

The Women in 3D Printing Innovator Award is a welcome addition to the TCT Awards this year. The awards continue to be the pinnacle of TCT Show and will once again celebrate the achievements of the industry's greatest innovators and pioneers over the last year.

Hosted by tech journalist and presenter Georgie Barrat, the ceremony will cover 15 categories in total across a range of industries including medical, aerospace, automotive and consumer products.
