LOUISVILLE, KY.— Self-Service World is now accepting entries for the 2006 Outstanding Achievement Awards.
The awards program continues the annual Kiosk Awards begun in 2000 by Kiosk magazine. In 2004, the magazine was acquired by NetWorld Alliance (which publishes this site), and it was renamed Self-Service World magazine in Jan. 2006, when it was paired with NetWorld Alliance's SelfServiceWorld.com.
While the Kiosk Awards focused exclusively on kiosks, the Outstanding Achievement Awards will consider all self-service applications including digital signage, POS self-checkout and more.
Entries will be accepted through July 14, and winners will be announced after an onsite judging component for finalists at The Self-Service & Kiosk Show, Sept. 28-29, in San Antonio, Texas.
A Reader's Choice component will involve readers of Self-Service World's online and print components.
The Self-Service World Outstanding Achievement Awards exist to recognize outstanding achievements in the use of self-service technologies and solutions.
The Awards are divided into seven industry-specific categories and one general category. This organization emphasizes the diversity and flexibility of self-service solutions and automation.
The Outstanding Achievement Awards will recognize Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each category. One of the category winners will be selected as the competition's Platinum Award winner.
Solutions may be entered either by end-market deployers or the solution manufacturer, but the Awards will recognize both parties.
