West Marine is accepting entries for its fifth-annual Green Product of the Year contest. Anybody can enter, including individuals, manufacturers, distributors and hobby inventors. The winner will be announced at February’s Miami International Boat Show, where a $10,000 prize will be awarded.

There is no entry fee. Products will be judged on six criteria:

• Economy (how is it priced versus other solutions?)

• Degree of innovation (how different is it?)

• Timing (how new is it?)
