The editors of R&D Magazine have announced that there is still plenty time to prepare your Entry Form for the 2014 R&D 100 Awards. In addition to a shorter, simpler form this year, the editors have decided to give participants an extra two weeks to prepare their submission. Friday, May 2 is the new deadline, so if you have a new product launched in 2013, consider entering!
What products qualify?
Any new technical product or process that was first available for purchase or licensing between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013, is eligible for the 2013 awards. This includes manufacturing processes such as machining, open source software, new types of materials or chemicals, and consumer-level products such as cameras. Proof-of-concepts and early-stage prototypes do not qualify, however; the submitted entry must be in working, marketable condition.
Entering is painless.
For 2014, the editors of R&D have completely overhauled the entry form and simplified it. There are now fewer questions to answer and shorter responses to fill out, all of which means substantially less time required by you in the submission process.
This year’s awards will be presented at our Gala Awards Banquet on Friday evening, Nov. 7, 2014 in the Grand Ballroom at the Bellagio Las Vegas, Nevada— an entirely new, exciting venue for our awards with more surprises to be announced along the way.
