The deadline for voting for the 2019 ILDA Career Achievement Award has passed. Thanks to everyone who voted. We have notified the person who won for 2019. The public announcement of the CAA recipient will be November 10 2019, at the ILDA Conference in Orlando.

The remainder of this page is left for reference, even though the deadline to vote has already passed.


About the Award

This award honors "an exceptional individual with a distinguished history of achievement in the laser display industry."

Nominees for the Career Achievement Award do not have to be a past or present ILDA Member -- he or she can be anyone who worked or achieved in the industry.

Past recipients of the Career Achievement Award can be divided into three broad categories:

  • People who helped build significant laser display-related businesses
  • People who made artistic and technical achievements
  • People who worked to improve ILDA and the laser display industry
In whatever areas they worked, the Career Achievement Award recipient should have made significant and lasting achievements in the field of laser display, and should be a person of integrity.

How to vote

All current 2019 ILDA Members, except Student Members, are eligible to vote for the 2019 Career Achievement Award.

Simply review the four nominees (below) and pick your favorite. You must pick one name from this list; no "write in" votes can be accepted. If you have trouble choosing, some additional suggestions about factors to consider are in the CAA section of this page.

  • To vote, send an email to a special ILDA address, caa-vote@laserist.org. In the email, include your ILDA Member name (company or individual), your name, and the name of the nominee you feel is most deserving of the Career Achievement Award. Here is a sample email:

DEADLINE: Voting opens on Tuesday June 4 2019 and closes on Tuesday June 18, 2019. Votes must be sent by 11:59 pm, your local time, on June 18. (Note: You can also vote for the Laser Photography Award during the same period; this will be a different email which goes to a different address.)

Vote for the CAA nominee only once per ILDA Membership. If we receive more than one CAA email vote from an ILDA Member, only the first email received will be counted.

For this reason, if you have more than one person in your ILDA Membership (e.g., in your company), select one person to send in your CAA email vote.
