Prism Awards 2021

Industry giants and emerging challengers will be honored at the Prism Awards in a virtual ceremony in March 2021. The annual black-tie event, now in its 13th year, recognizes industrial innovation in photonics in multiple categories. For the consideration of the 2021 Prism Awards, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and media partner Photonics Media received 149 applications from 18 countries.

Notable trends in quantum, manufacturing, healthcare, smart sensing, and autonomous transportation mark this year's entries and finalists. Emerging companies Lumedica and Qnami and returning Prism champions WaveOptics and nLight will share the stage alongside industry stalwarts such as IPG and Osram. With ten categories ranging from manufacturing, vision technology, and life sciences to transportation, quality control, and medical devices, the Prism Awards showcase the latest products and technical innovations across optics and photonics.
