For 2008, VON Magazine has been entrusted with the legacy and evolution of the pulver100. The VON Magazine Innovators (Innovators) Awards will continue to recognize companies that represent the future of IP communications, singling out innovative ideas, products, and businesses with substantial real-world deployments and significant growth, but there are some changes in how we will select and recognize accomplishments.
Innovators will be judged on new IP communications products and services introduced in the 2007 calendar year. You must have a shipping product, and you must have customers. It has to be a justifiably new product–not version 2.6 as compared to last year’s 2.51.
Companies will have to apply online at the VON Magazine Web site to be considered for an award. The application is available online now. The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2007. The award form can be found at www.vonmag.com/innovators.
