Enter the Leading Lights

Light Reading is once again running its annual awards program, the Leading Lights – referred to in some circles as the "Lighties." The Lighties honor top public and private telecom equipment and services companies and their executives for their outstanding achievements in the telecommunications industry. (See Nominate the Leading Lights and The Leading Lights Are On!)

For those of you who haven't entered yet, time's a'wasting. (Note: The deadline has just been extended to November 11). If you haven't started, it's time to burn the midnight oil.

The entry form can be found here

The awards will be given out at our Awards Dinner in New York City on December 14, following our Telecom Investment Conference.

The winners will be picked by Light Reading editors and Heavy Reading analysts, with input from various industry luminaries.

Among the awards, a top industry leader will be honored with our Industry Statesman award; the most promising public company in the Best Investment Potential category; the top emerging technology in the Best New Product category; and hot startups in the Top IPO or M&A Candidate category.

A couple tips for filing your entry: When you fill out the entry form, make it as detailed as possible. List the most significant publicly named customers of your product, and why your product or service stands out from the competition.

How to get started? Just fill out an online form. The form's right here, so get to work!

The awards program is completely free to enter. But hurry up! To repeat, the deadline is November 11.
