The Awards 10 Years On
For a decade, the RFID Journal Awards have helped organizations in a variety of industries to understand how they can benefit from radio frequency identification technologies.
Jun 23, 2016—
RFID Journal introduced the RFID Journal Awards in 2007 to recognize some of the best and most innovative uses of radio frequency identification. Our goal was to highlight how RFID was benefiting some companies so others would take notice and realize the technology might help them, too.
To be frank, I had some concerns that first year. Would we get enough submissions and would they be for projects worth honoring? Would the awards be seen as credible? To ensure fair competition, we instituted a practice, which we continue today, of having independent judges evaluate the entries (see Meet the Judges).
As I'd hoped, the RFID Journal Awards are helping companies in myriad industries understand how they can benefit from RFID. Each year, we invite the winners to speak at RFID Journal LIVE!, post their presentations in our video library and profile their projects in our special magazine awards issue. I hope you'll benefit from learning about these impressive deployments—perhaps next year we'll be honoring your project.
