TAMPA, FLORIDA USA -- October 10, 2006: This year the C.P.S. Awards presentation started off the 2006 Computer DJ/VJ/KJ Summit in Tampa, Florida. Hosted by C.P.S. Educational Department, the C.P.S. community recognized several individuals in attendance for outstanding industry contributions, industry service, and talent with the prestigious C.P.S. Awards.
The Awards are an opportunity for colleagues to celebrate and publicly recognize the achievements and services of individuals for the betterment of our industry.
The presentation was made at the beautiful grounds of Sheraton Suites Tampa prior to the first scheduled seminar of the 2006 DJ Summit, attended by a large number of industry professionals who enthusiastically supported their colleagues in recognition of their success and accomplishments.
The 2006 C.P.S. Pioneering Award was presented to Dr. Drax, current President of the American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA) and long time computer DJ activist, advocate, and educator.
2006 C.P.S. Karaoke Pioneer Award was presented to Mr. Gai Marcos—If you’re remotely familiar with Karaoke over the years, in one way or another you have utilized technology developed by this industry pioneer. With a Bachelor of Technology degree, Gai Marcos developed and first introduced the now-popular and industry standard format MP3+G in early 1998. He also developed the first PC Karaoke player to support the format called "WinCDG."
2006 Manufacturers Representative of the Year Award was presented to Silvio Zeppieri of Denon DJ, who embodies the elements of ethics, equity, excellence, and professionalism. This award recognizes the importance of manufacturers’ representatives in the success of our industry.
2006 KJ Singing Championship Award was presented to KJ Diane Calo of Orlando, Florida. She sang an excellent rendition of one of Cher’s popular tunes, and the panel of industry judges and a room full of DJs, KJs, and VJs from across the nation scored her performance as the best during the 2006 TriceraSoft-sponsored event.
The C.P.S. Awards program will be making other presentations during industry events for individuals who did not attend the DJ Summit
