It’s fast approaching summer and that means the entry deadlines for the many of the awards from the media are quickly approaching. This allows plenty of time for judging before the winter award ceremonies.

The deadlines for the WSJ Innovation awards and the Cable and Satellite International awards have both passed. The next on the list is Electronic Product Design’s (EPD) eLegacy, closing on May 30th. EPD has, so we’re told, gone with an 80s theme for its Kensington Roof Gardens ceremony in London.

The IET Innovation awards have opened and will shut in July. And Electronics Weekly’s Elektra awards, which will be held in the UK rather than at Electronica this year, will open for nominations on the 26th May.
