A Little Bit About the Awards

Internationally known columnist and author John C. Dvorak, corporate sponsor Ascend Communications, numerous corporate co-sponsors and the 1997 Dvorak Awards Committee are pleased to announce the 6th Annual John C. Dvorak Awards for Excellence in Telecommunications. Historically, these awards are presented to the individual and/or corporate pioneers in the telecommunications industry whose vision and commitment have most significantly contributed to the advancement of telecommunications over the preceding twelve months. Additionally, as warranted, one award per year is bestowed for "Lifetime Achievement" and for "Person of the Year."
Each year for the last six years, Mr. Dvorak and the awards committee (made up of a special panel of judges annually recruited from the ranks of industry experts) select the awards ceremony's venue; identify the award categories; solicit nominations through BBS's, Web Pages and Commercial Online Services; qualify and evaluate nominees; conduct the balloting process; and, identify the winners of these prestigious awards.
Join us for lots of fun, excitement, door prizes, fabulous food, and informal discussion on the future of telecommunications with hosts, John C. Dvorak and Nick Anis, and winners of the 1997 Dvorak Telecommunications Awards. Each year the attendance grows larger. InfoWorld reports the show should be well attended. We expect the awards banquet to again be sold out!
