Lutron Opens Entries for Excellence Awards

June 12, 2012

Lutron Electronics has made the call for entries for its 2012 Excellence Awards, an annual competition for Lutron’s Residential System Providers.

New for 2012 is the ability to submit an entry as a video testimonial, including a tour of the project, interviews, etc.
 
Entries will be accepted through 5 p.m. EST on Monday, July 9. 
 
The competition was created in 2003 as a way to recognize the world’s best total home control projects using Lutron light and shade controls, temperature controls, appliance modules and more. Close to 80 installation companies have been honored since its inception.
 
This year, a total of six categories will be recognized:
1. Essence of Pleasance
2. Best Energy Saving Application/Project
3. Best Window Systems Project
4. Best RadioRA 2 Project (retrofit)
5. Most Unique/Creative Use of Lutron Products
6. Best integration with a Security System
 
“By offering the option to submit a video entry, we’re making it simpler than ever for our system providers to enter the competition,” said Jeff Zemanek, director, residential new business development at Lutron. “We’ve relaxed all of the requirements and are letting the entrants decide what they want the judges to see, so you now have the ability to complete the entry in less than an hour.”
 
Category finalists will be announced in mid-August and winners will be announced on Thursday, September 6, in conjunction with the CEDIA EXPO in Indianapolis, IN.
 
Winners will receive a recognition award, attendance at an awards dinner with Lutron executives, and will have a winner’s logo added to their company listing on the Lutron website.
 
Visit lutron.com for a complete list of rules, entry requirements and judging criteria. All entries must be submitted using the online resource.
