The LCGC Awards have now been in existence since 2008, and with several years of award winners now active in the chromatography community, it is fair to say that we now have a reasonable track record and body of work to review in measuring the impact these awards have had, both on the industry and on the winners themselves.

The LCGC Awards have now been in existence since 2008, and with several years of award winners now active in the chromatography community, it is fair to say that we now have a reasonable track record and body of work to review in measuring the impact these awards have had, both on the industry and on the winners themselves. As we move toward 2011 and the fourth installment of what has become an annual fixture of Pittcon, we have heard from many past winners, several of whom have gone on to win further awards and accolades in the industry, and several of whom have taken on an active role with LCGC, both in print and online.

In all this time, not one of our award winners has failed to remark that this award changed his career and opened doors that otherwise might not have opened. One award winner, on the occasion of winning another recent industry award, remarked candidly that he had no doubt that his status as an LCGC Award winner weighed heavily in his favor.

With the 2011 LCGC Awards now ramping up and with the nomination and voting process beginning in the coming weeks and months, we are all looking forward to seeing whose career path will be altered for the better this year. Who will be this year's Emerging Leader and Lifetime Achievement Award winners, and who will see doors open for them in an industry in which they will instantly be given a more prestigious standing?

Keep looking for more information on this year's awards, both in this space, on www.chromatographyonline.com, and in LCGC's numerous digital vehicles, such as the "E-Separation Solutions" e-newsletter. Nominate your deserving colleagues and then cast your vote, and perhaps you can contribute to the advancement of yet another young chromatographer's career.
