The 2018 Industry Innovators Awards, brought to you by Future, lets you shine a spotlight on a very special individual in media technology, someone you know who makes a difference and deserves to be heralded. It can acknowledge professional accomplishments and successes; or it can identify leadership qualities that others may not yet have fully appreciated.
You know someone who innovates in TV/video technology, radio/audio technology, content production/delivery and government video, and whose role deserves more appreciation. It could be just about anyone. It could be YOU.
Here’s your chance to shine a spotlight on such innovators.
To help with your nomination, here are three things to keep in mind when submitting:
- Think broadly. Nominees can come from the worlds of TV/video technology, radio/audio technology, content production/delivery and government video. Perhaps it’s a director of engineering, a manufacturer’s product designer, a consultant or technical researcher, a company founder or unsung hero… Someone who has a great professional track record or whose superb leadership and innovation skills mark them as someone to watch.
- Tell a story! The nomination form will prompt you to explain in 500 words or less how this person makes a difference. Your nomination text is a crucial part of how judges will choose. Fill out the nomination thoughtfully and with as much detail as possible. Why is this person special to you? What successes have they had, what projects have they led, what makes them noteworthy? Celebrate your nominee!
- Think visually. Remember that the text and image you provide will not only be seen by the judges, but also published in the Innovator’s Gallery.
