PLASA has extended the submission deadline for the fourth annual Rock Our World Awards to July 10 to allow for more nominations to the awards program. The winners will be announced during LDI in Orlando in October.

The awards recognize groundbreaking achievement by PLASA members and were designed to acknowledge the genius of both the creator of technology and the designers or integrators who apply it.

Contestants for the 2010 awards showcased a wide variety of achievements, from the simplest problem solver to complex uses of technology that extended the boundaries of entertainment technology. Nominations included innovative new products, unusual applications, and massive events that highlighted the collaborative nature of our industry.

Anyone may nominate a member for the awards. Nominations for the 2011 awards must be products introduced to market or projects that took place between October 1, 2009 and June 30, 2011 and must not have been previously nominated. Nominations close July 10.

A panel of judges, including well-known industry veterans and rising young stars will judge the nominations, and finalists will be announced in early September.
