Date:9/23/2013

Bellingham, WA, and Pittsfield, MA (PRWEB) September 22, 2013

Entries are now being accepted through 11 October for the prestigious 2014 Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation. The new extended deadline reflects a permanent change in the awards program, responding to requests to move the date out of the busy late-summer period. The international competition honors new technology and product inventions from the multi-billion dollar optics and photonics industry, and is sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and Photonics Media.

The Prism Awards boost visibility and credibility for companies with the most creative product inventions annually. Products that have or will have been sold, delivered or launched between 1 January 2013 and 6 February 2014 are eligible. Companies may enter one product for multiple categories or multiple products in separate categories. Entries are being accepted in the categories of:

  •      Advanced Manufacturing
  •     Defense and Security
  •     Detectors, Sensing, Imaging and Cameras
  •     Energy
  •     Industrial Lasers
  •     Information and Communication
  •     Other Light Sources
  •     Life Sciences and Biophotonics
  •     Optics and Optical Components
  •     Scientific Lasers
  •     Test, Measurement, Metrology.

Finalists will be announced in November. Winners will be announced 5 February at a gala banquet held during SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco.
