The annual Pipeline Innovation Awards have provided the most credible recognition of technical innovation in the industry for more than a decade.  Each year, the Innovation Awards program receives hundreds of nominations which are distilled to a select number of semi-finalists, who compete across more than 10 categories of technical innovation. Contestants submit extensive evaluation information to validate their innovation, which is objectively scored across over 20 different aspects of technical innovation. This information is provided to an esteemed judging panel consisting of key executives who adopt, recommend and leverage like technology to advance the way we work, live, play and communicate as a globally-connected society.  The Judges exclusively select the most innovative competitor in each category.
