2012 Edison Awards Winners Announced

Event Showcases the Best of 21st Century Innovation (April 27, 2012)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/27/12 -- The Edison Awards, celebrating 25 years of honoring the successful development and launch of game-changing new products and services, announced its 2012 winners last night. Hundreds of executives representing world-recognized brands as well as up and coming companies gathered to celebrate exceptional innovation in 15 categories and industries.

Being recognized with an Edison Award is one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name.

"As the pace of innovation quickens and the 'race to next' becomes ever more competitive, it's increasingly important to take a moment to recognize excellence in innovation and greatness in the innovators who make our future," said Thomas Stat, 2012 Edison Awards Steering Committee Chairman.

The nominees were judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, members of the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG), academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medicine. The nominees were judged on a new set of evaluation criteria developed in partnership with Nielsen. The new criteria establish a new definition of innovation, leveraging the primary assessment themes of Concept, Value, Delivery and Impact.


The highlight of the Edison Awards Gala was the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to Chris Anderson, TED Curator, as well as an Edison Lifetime Achievement Award in tribute to Steve Jobs.
