The NAB is looking for nominees for its annual Engineering Achievement awards. Separate awards will be given for achievements in radio and television, at the NAB Show Technology Luncheon, on April 16, 2008, in Las Vegas. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 15, 2008.
Each year since 1959, NAB has presented the Engineering Achievement Award to an individual for their outstanding accomplishments in the broadcast industry. In 1991, the Association began giving two awards — one for achievements in radio and the other for television. The award winners will be selected by the NAB Executive Committee and will be considered based on the more recent achievements of the nominees.
Qualifications for the Engineering Achievement Awards should be based on a single significant contribution or contributions made over a period of time that, taken together, have significantly advanced the state of the art of broadcast engineering. Candidates for the award must be or have been an owner, officer or employee of any company, subsidiary or division whose primary business is broadcasting, or is directly in support of broadcasting, including employees of the federal government directly engaged in broadcast engineering work. The size of the organization with which each candidate is affiliated is not important.
The candidates for the awards must have made contributions in the following categories: inventions; development of new techniques; dissemination of technical knowledge and literature; leadership in broadcast engineering affairs; or an outstanding contribution which, in the opinion of the NAB Executive Committee, warrants consideration.
