Green Media — publisher of Arbor Age, Landscape and Irrigation, Outdoor Power Equipment and SportsTurf — is now accepting nominations for its 2013 list of “Industry Innovators” awards.

The awards program will be broken into two categories: Innovative People and Innovative Products.

Innovative People
We are seeking Green Industry professionals who have been innovative forces. It could be someone who has created an innovative product or solution, has been innovative in their business practices, has used an innovative approach in the field or their day-to-day work, etc. If you, or someone you know, has been innovative in tree care, landscape, irrigation, outdoor power equipment, sports turf management or other Green Industry fields, we want to hear about it.

Innovative Products
If your company has created an innovative product or solution in 2013 for use in the Green Industry, we want to know about it as well.

If you would like to nominate an innovative Green Industry person or product for consideration for the 2013 list of “Industry Innovators,” please e-mail the nomination to John Kmitta, associate publisher, at
