 content on the Internet, in association with IT World Canada (IDG Canada), is

     Sponsoring the First Annual White Paper Awards will be several leaders in
 the area of IT who work closely with the extensive Bitpipe Network, including:
 Yahoo!(R) Industry Marketplaces (Nasdaq:   YHOO), PR Newswire,
 ITWorldCanada.com,  Network Computing, Network World, and more!  Judging the
 entries will be a panel of editors and analysts from several leading IT
 analysts and publications.
     A white paper provides an overview of a technology product, trend or idea,
 or a technology solution, service, or architecture.  In doing so, it outlines
 the importance of the topic and the thinking behind its structure compared to
 other alternatives.  White papers are widely used by IT vendors as a way to
 communicate and explain in-depth information.  They are highly valued by IT
 and business decision makers as a way to understand and learn about
 technology.
     Research shows that 90 percent of professional IT buyers consult white
 papers before making a buying decision. The White Paper Awards, produced by
 Bitpipe, recognize excellence in technical writing in the fields of Computer
 Hardware, Software, and Communications.  White papers will be judged on the
 following criteria:
 
     Editorial Quality, the level of writing, structure of the writing, flow of
 the overall narrative and use of clear language to explain the topic or
 product;
     Format/Presentation, the actual quality of layout of the paper including
 incorporation of any charts, diagrams or graphics;
     End user utility, the balance between clearly setting out the benefits of
 your product or explaining the issue, while not deafening the reader with
 overt marketing and sales speak. IT professionals consistently value those
 papers that clearly explain and state a case in a reasonably balanced way.
 
     Winning papers will receive promotion and recognition in the IT Community,
 including special listings on sponsor Web sites. Representatives from winning
 companies will be invited to the White Paper Awards at the White Paper
 Warehouse event in Toronto on June 20.
     "Bitpipe's First Annual White Paper Awards are an excellent spotlight for
 IT companies and their technical literature," said Jay Habegger, chief
 executive officer, Bitpipe.  "White papers are vital representations of
 company offerings, and recognition of the  diligence, creativity, and effort
 put into these documents is long overdue."
