Nominations for the third annual ESTA Rock Our World Awards will be accepted through July 1.
The awards recognize groundbreaking achievement by ESTA members in new products, product applications, or projects, and were created to acknowledge the genius of both the creator of technology and the designer or integrator who applies the technology in a real world environment.
Contestants for the 2009 awards showcased everything from the lighting of the Grand Mosque to the staging of the Democratic National Convention. All highlighted the collaborative nature of the industry. Nominations may be made by anyone in the industry, but an ESTA member must be involved as the designer, manufacturer, supplier, or collaborator.
Nominations for the 2010 awards must have been introduced to market or taken place between October 1, 2008 and June 30, 2010, and must not have been previously nominated.
The finalists will be announced in early September and the winners at ESTA's annual dinner on October 21, the evening before the LDI show opens. To view the 2009 finalists, winners and judges go to www.esta.org/news/awards/RockOurWorldAwards. Nominations can be made on the same site, by calling 212-244-1505, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
