Organizers of the Electronic Security Expo put out a call for entries for the newly named "ESX 2015 Innovation Awards." Entries are due April 1, 2015. Winners will be notified on April 15.
ESX will take place June 24-26 in Baltimore this year.
Formerly called the Maximum Impact Awards, the ESX 2015 Innovation Awards will be given in 15 categories, which include several sub-categories. New subcategories include: DIY Security, Secure Wireless Communication Technology, and Activity Sensing/Medicine Management.
"This year, emerging products and services are eligible-as well as those that have been field-tested. Companies are encouraged to enter both products and services," according to an ESX news release.
The goal is to "recognize those innovators who are driving our industry forward and improving both our offerings and our ability to run our companies efficiently and profitably," George De Marco, ESX Chairman, said in a prepared statement.
Look for information on another new ESX event this year: "ESX TechVision Challenge," where top category winners will be invited to present before a panel of judges.
