About the Innovator Award Contest
The Dialogic Innovator Award Contest, which will run from April 20, 2009 through September 30, 2009, is open to application developers worldwide who are ready to trial, go to market with or have recently deployed an exciting new application built on one or more Dialogic components.

"We'll be judging the submissions based on two main criteria - the most innovative new application, and/or the best application that presents a different way to solve a problem."
"We encourage application developers to join the Dialogic Exchange Network today to learn more about the Innovator Award Contest and to connect with thousands of other developers to brainstorm ideas, share best practices, or just chat about the latest emerging technologies," continued Machi. "In addition to corporate blogs, technical forums and media downloads, you can also get up-to-date service and support news from Dialogic and be the first to know about the hottest industry trends."
