Jennifer, am not getting a clear picture about the contest, can you be more descriptive about the contest and what type of entries you are expecting.

Mydesign - sorry about that. I guess I was just resting on our Design News laurels here.

Products that entered the marketplace between Sept. 1, 2011 and Aug. 31, 2012 are eligible, as long as they fit into one of the 5 main categories/subcategories.

Keep in mind, we are not looking for end products, but the components used to make those end products. Hope that makes sense. Please feel free to email me or Lauren Muskett if you have further questions.

Jennifer, thanks for the clarification. Will you require the complete design and block diagram or an overall view with explanation of the system is enough.

@Mydesign - we require a highly detailed, written description (300 words or less) as well as 1 or 2 high-resolution images. The nomination form is fairly simple - it has a space to enter your description as well as two modules where you can upload your images.
