As indicated in its subtitle,
"As Selected by U.S. Journalists",
this independent advisory panel of six U.S.
journalists associated with IT and home electronics
will walk through the exhibition to review and
present awards to significant technologies,
products and services based on innovation and
potential influence in the U.S. market.
The results of the panel's award decisions will be
immediately made available on the same day to
media in the United States, Europe, Asia and Japan,
while aspects such as technology, product,
and service of the awardees will be reported on
in greater detail through the respective publications
of the journalists.
All products, technologies, and services exhibited at CEATEC JAPAN 2010 are eligible and the panel of judges will walk through the exhibition to review and select award-winning categories, which will be announced later in the show. Awards will be first presented in eight different categories and then re-evaluated to select the Grand Prix winner for the most significant product of the show, with a special award given to a product related to Smart Grid Innovation/Green IT.
Evaluation and examination of the categories in booths where preparations have been completed will be conducted on October 4th, the day before the show is open to the public, and on October 6th. The winning categories will then be announced at the awards ceremony on October 7th from 11:00 a.m. at the CEATEC JAPAN venue (Press briefing room, 2nd floor of International Conference Hall).
Note: The journalists will select winners based on insights gained from journalistic experiences of the past to determine whether the reviewed item has potential impact, is influential, is functional, and/or can be considered revolutionary for the U.S. market. Other considerations include whether the item offers unique and original solutions to the latest needs and demands of the market.
Two new categories - Automotive, and Human Health and Household - have been added to the award categories of the CEATEC INNOVATION AWARDS 2010. The Smart Grid Innovation/Green IT category has also been confirmed as this year's Special Award.
