Here is a good contest I just learned about. The 2012 Edison Awards, sponsored by the Nielsen Company, Discovery Communications, and USA Today, will present New Product Awards, The Edison Achievement Award™ and The Edison Green Award™ in 2012. The deadline for nominations for the 2011 Awards is December 2, 2011.
The Edison Awards are celebrating their 25th year. Thomas Edison (1847-1931) was granted 1,093 U.S. patents and pioneered five industries that have transformed our world, including the incandescent electric light and the distribution system for electrical power, the phonograph and recorded sound, the telephone transmitter, the electrical storage battery, and the motion-picture camera. These awards recognize innovation, achievement and excellence in the development, marketing and launch of new products.
Finalists will be notified via email the week of February 13, 2012 and the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be unveiled at the Edison Awards show on April 26, 2012 in New York City. For more information, or to enter an award nomination, visit www.edisonawards.com.
