Display of the Year Awards Nominations Deadline Is Fast Approaching

The Display of the Year Awards committee members work diligently each year to discover all the best display products, applications, and components, but they cannot do it without your help. December 31, 2010, is the last day to submit a nomination for the Society for Information Display's 2011 Display of the Year Awards.

The DYAs are the most prestigious awards in the display industry. The annual winners are selected in three categories – display, display application, and display component – by an international committee consisting of leading members of the technical display community. When determining the winners, the Display of the Year Awards committee considers many factors, including technical innovation, commercial significance, and potential social impact.

The awards committee accepts third-party nominations, but in recent years has opened up the process to allow companies to self-nominate their own products, applications, and components. The source of the nomination will in no way influence the committee's final selections of award winners: anyone can nominate any product, application, or component, regardless of company affiliation.

To be eligible for a 2011 award, the product, application, or component must have been introduced and been commercially available at some time between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010. The awards will be announced and presented at Display Week 2011 which will take place in Los Angeles, California, May 15–20, 2011. An article on the winners will also appear in the May/June issue ofInformation Display.
