    The JAX Innovation Awards utilizes a 3-stage nomination, shortlist and judging process. Nominations are collected from across the Java ecosystem, with companies and individuals free to nominate the people, technologies and companies they feel most deserve recognition for their value to the world of Java.

    Nominations can be made at http://jax-awards.com/submissions.php, closing on May 7th, 2012.

    Following the nominations stage, a panel of industry experts will shortlist 5 outstanding finalists per category.

    The panel will also select a winner of the Special Jury Award category. This one of a kind award will be given to one of the submitted nominees, in acknowledgment of their unique contribution and positive impact on the Java ecosystem.

    JAX Innovation awards are brought to you by the organisers of the worldwide JAX conference series, Software and Support Media. Speaking on the importance of a reward programme, Software & Supports Chief Content Officer, Sebastian Meyen, comments:

    "The achievements of the Java Ecosystem are unique in the history of IT. Since it's early beginnings in the mid1990's, Java has evolved towards a model of open innovation. Java is not only a technology, but also a room for innovative business. Therefore the JAX Innovation Awards feature more than a single dimension - one rewards the most innovative Java technology, one rewards the most innovative business model in the Java ecosystem and one is for the most influential ambassador/evangelist of the Java ecosystem."

    Winners will be announced on July 9th 2012; in an awards ceremony at JAXconf (http://jaxconf.com/) in San Francisco, CA.

    The winner in each category will receive recognition as best-in-class as determined by their industry peers and the Java community, PLUS a cash prize of $2,500 for each winner.
