Hu-Friedy announces the 10th Annual Ortho Wire Bending Contest

Competitions and promotions

Hu-Friedy has launched its 10th Annual Ortho Wire Bending Contest. For the past decade, Hu-Friedy has been challenging orthodontic practitioners worldwide to showcase their creativity and wire-bending talents during an onsite competition at the annual American Association of Orthodontics show in the US. This year, however, Hu-Friedy has expanded the competition with a brand new online component, the "Voter's Choice contest," giving even more people a chance to participate.

Both the online and onsite contests offer two separate submission categories: "Single Wire" and "Anything Goes". The rules are simple: entries in the "Single Wire" category must be designed from a single piece of orthodontic wire, while entries in the "Anything Goes" category can be designed from multiple orthodontic wires.

The online Voter's Choice Contest will accept submissions from January 21 to March 8, 2013. All submissions will be posted to Hu-Friedy's Facebook and Pinterest social media pages beginning March 11, 2013 and will be open for voting through April 1, 2013. All online submissions are also eligible to bring to the onsite contest at AAO. The winner(s) of the online contest will be announced on April 2nd and displayed at the AAO meeting. Winners will be automatically entered into the onsite contest. The online winner for "Anything Goes" will receive $1,500 (retail value) worth of Hu-Friedy Ortho Instruments and the "Single Wire" winner will win $500 (retail value) worth of Hu-Friedy instruments. Contestants can enter at
