The Dvorak Awards for Excellence in Communication were established by computing columnist John C. Dvorak. Ascend Communications was their primary sponsor, but other businesses both inside and outside the computing industry also assumed sponsorship. The awards were given from 1992 through 1997. Although a 1998 ballot was published, finalists were never revealed and the awards were never presented. The abrupt end to the awards has never been officially explained.[citation needed]

Dvorak judged the awards in collaboration with a committee of computing industry experts who were recruited annually.
