NEW YORK -- Light Reading (http://www.lightreading.com), the world's leading online communications publication, today reiterated its call for nominees for the industry's leading awards program, the Leading Lights Awards.

The deadline for Leading Lights Award nominations is September 28. The awards program is completely free to enter and there are 10 exciting award categories in this year's program.

The awards categories are: Reader's Choice Person of the Year, Best Investment Potential (public company), Best New Product (one each for both public and private company), Best New Service (both public and private company), Best Marketing (both public and private company), Best M&A Strategy (public company), and Top IPO or M&A Candidate (private company).

For complete details on the Leading Lights Awards, the venue, the Awards entry form, sponsorship opportunities, and the rules of the contest, go to: http://www.lightreading.com/leadinglights.

Light Reading's Leading Lights Awards will be announced at a special gala dinner on Monday, October 15, 2007, following the first day of Light Reading's Ethernet Expo in New York City. This change in venue will pair Light Reading's most successful conference series with the industry's most prestigious awards program.

Light Reading's reputation for fiercely independent analysis makes this the most credible and authoritative awards program in the industry - and provides telecom companies with a superlative opportunity to evangelize their expertise and success.

Again, the deadline for Leading Lights Award nominations is September 28.
