Annual Awards Program

The MIPI® Alliance Membership Awards Program is an annual awards program to recognize outstanding contributions and achievements by both individual and corporate members. To emphasize impartiality and fairness, the Membership Awards Program will be administered by an Awards & Recognition Committee (ArComm) named by the Board of Directors. Annual awards will be presented at the MIPI Alliance All Members Meeting in the fall of each year.
