Coming soon: 2013 Engineers' Choice Award CALL FOR ENTRIES, for automation products newly available in North America between December 2011 and November 2012.

Note : The date sequence of the awards was changed for 2010 so that the award year reflects the year in which the awards are announced, rather than the year in which the products were introduced (as has been the practice in the past). As such there are no "2009" award recipients.
