Since 1987, the Edison Awards™ have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services and business leaders in the world.

The Edison Best New Product Awards™ is an annual competition honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. The competition is open to innovative organizations across the globe. The Edison Awards are focused on the innovators as much as the innovations – a unique distinction in the world of award programs. Award winners represent "game changing" products and services, as well as excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria: Concept, Value, Delivery, and Impact. An Edison Award represents significant value to the award winner and to the cause of innovation and highlights the strong marketing value of an unbiased 3rd-party validation.

The Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose extraordinary new product and market development methods garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents and made him a household name across the world. The Edison Awards™ symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Edison and his Menlo Park team, while also strengthening the human drive for innovation, creativity, and ingenuity.
