Telerik is proud to announce that RadControls for .NET including the UI suites of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, WinForms, Silverlight and WPF, has been nominated a finalist in the "Libraries, Frameworks and Components" category at the 19th Annual Software Development Jolt Product Excellence Awards.

Famous for its coveted trophies and intense competition, the Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards have been presented annually to showcase products that have "jolted" the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient.

"The Jolt judges have selected these finalists from the nearly 300 qualified nominations that were submitted online. The submissions represent the many innovative tools available for every phase of the software development lifecycle," said Amber Ankerholz, Jolt Award Project Manager. "This year’s finalist round was extremely competitive and we appreciate the effort all of the participants put into showcasing their products’ features for the judges.”

In the next round of the Jolt Award process, the judges will examine the finalists according to the standard criteria of audience suitability, productivity, innovation, quality, ROI, risk, and flexibility. They focus on products that are ahead of the curve, universally useful, rich in functionality or that were solutions to problems in their product space.

The awards ceremony will take place on March 11, 2009 at the annual Software Development Conference & Expo West at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
