As seen in LASER FOCUS WORLD:

Based on the impartial ratings by our judges, awards were assigned in four different levels—BronzeSilverGold, and Platinum—to companies or organizations that demonstrated excellence in a product or technology, an application, or in research and development.

Submissions were judged on originality; innovation; their impact on designers, systems integrators, or users; and whether they fulfilled a new market need, leveraged a novel technology, and/or increased productivity.

To celebrate our Innovators Awards Program, Laser Focus World held a webcast ceremony on May 10, 2018, for all honorees, and presented awards in person during CLEO.
