Leading Lights 2011 Entry Forms



Light Reading is now accepting entries for the 2011 Leading Lights awards and the Light Reading Hall of Fame, two programs where top companies and their executives will be recognized for their outstanding achievements in the next-generation communications industry.

The Leading Lights awards and Light Reading Hall of Fame winners will be revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at a gala dinner at Hudson Terrace in New York City. The awards will be judged by Light Reading editors, with help from Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research analysts, and feedback from our network of sources throughout the industry.

The Leading Lights program focuses on next-generation communications technology, applications, and services, and it rewards the companies who have performed well over the past year. Light Reading's Hall of Fame seeks to recognize several individuals - the famous and infamous - for their remarkable contributions to the sector.

The contest is completely free to enter, though you must be a registered Light Reading user, and you can enter as many categories as you wish. Click on each award description below to bring up that category's entry form. Return to this page to enter each new category.

The deadline for entries is Friday, Sept. 16, 2011. We will announce finalists for each category during the last week in September.

re: Leading Lights 2011 Entry Forms

A reader asks: To submit a product or service for the Leading Lights Awards, is there a certain timeline we need to abide to in terms of when it was/will be launched?


Yes, since we announced the Leading Lights finalists for last year's contest on Sept. 22 that day became the last date of eligibility for the 2010 Leading Lights. Even our editors can't change things after the finalists are announced. So,&nbsp;any product or service announced on or after Sept. 23, 2010 is in contention for the 2011 Leading Lights.&nbsp;

It all depends on what comes in and what they're up against. But point taken. BTW, what do you think should get the nod this year?

I hope none of them wins any award. Their technologies will not be in our future..
