RFID Journal today announced that it is accepting submissions for the 2014 RFID Journal Awards, which recognize companies and organizations that have distinguished themselves by their successful use of radio frequency identification or the introduction of a valuable new RFID product or service. Last year's winners included Boeing, Hanmi Pharmaceutical, Impinj, Infinite Biomedical Technologies, Auto-ID Center cofounder Kevin Ashton, and the City of Grand Rapids, Michigan (see 2013 RFID Journal Awards: Honoring Excellence).

RFID Journal's editors have selected an independent panel of judges to evaluate entries and choose next year's winners. The 2014 RFID Journal Awards will be given in seven categories:

Best NFC Deployment
A new category this year, this award will be given to the end-user company that has demonstrated the best use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for consumer or other applications.

Best RFID Implementation
This award will be given to the end-user company or organization that has demonstrated the best use of RFID technology to improve its operations. The winner will be the company that best demonstrates how RFID is delivering real value to shareholders.

Best Use of RFID to Enhance a Product or Service
This award will be given to the end-user company that has best used RFID to enhance an existing product or service had not previously incorporated RFID. The winner will be the company that demonstrates how it is utilizing the technology to provide additional value to its customers.

Most Innovative Use of RFID
This award will be given to the end-user company with the most novel use of RFID. The winner will be the company that best demonstrates how it is using the technology in a new or unusual way to solve a business problem, deliver a return on investment to shareholders or improve customer service.

Best in Show
The winner of this award will be determined by a team of judges at RFID Journal LIVE! 2014, and will go to the company that exhibits the best new RFID product or service at the event.

Special Achievement Award

RFID Green Award
This award will be given to the end-user company that has demonstrated the best use of RFID technology to improve the environment, increase recycling or enhance sustainability.

"Each year, we have seen some incredible RFID projects, and have been able to recognize companies for their outstanding use of RFID or their outstanding RFID products," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "I know I speak for all of the judges when I say I can't wait to read the 2014 submissions."

Awards submissions are due no later than Jan. 31, 2014. There is no cost to submit an entry, and the winners will receive their awards at RFID Journal LIVE! (to be held on Apr. 8-10 in Orlando, Fla.), and be featured in RFID Journal's digital magazine.
