Casting Competition

The AFS/Casting Source Casting Competition is your chance to show the engineering and purchasing community what a metal casting can accomplish. Beyond the company recognition and industry public relations gained through the honored castings, all entries can appear in Casting Source magazine's departments. The 2022 winners will be showcased at CastExpo2022 in April 2022 and in issues of Modern Casting and Casting Source.

Participation is open to all North American metalcasters and designers/users of metal castings. Previous entries may be resubmitted. Castings are sought in all metals, casting processes, end-use applications and sizes/weights. Click here for the entry form.

Independent judges will evaluate each entry on:

  • Benefits delivered to the casting customer.
  • Benefits delivered to the casting customer due to conversion from another process
  • The use of the casting process’ unique capabilities.
  • Contribution to growth and expansion of the casting market.

The deadline to submit an entry is January 7, 2022. Please complete the form (with any supplemental information) and send it, along with the casting, to:
