CEDIA’s annual Electronic Lifestyles Awards competition is now underway, with the online entry system officially open. This year’s competition features a few changes from years past.
This year, companies are no longer limited to two project entries per category, and may submit as many projects as they like.
The competition features seven project categories, including Home Theater and Hidden Installation as well as the new Sustainable Lifestyle Installation category.
CEDIA members interested in entering their projects may view guidelines and begin the entry process now at www.cedia.org/awards.
CEDIA also gives manufacturers the opportunity to highlight their best products and technologies through the Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards competition. Categories include Best New Product, and Product Hall of Fame. Manufacturers can also compete for a Sustainable Lifestyle Product Innovation award, which recognizes a product that facilitates reduced energy consumption, as well as an Attendees’ Choice award, which will be voted on by CEDIA EXPO attendees.
CEDIA once again will partner with HGTVPro.com to offer a People’s Pick award competition. Visitors to HGTVPro.com — whose 800,000 monthly viewers include homeowners as well as building, remodeling, and design professionals — will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite projects in the Home Theater, Media Room, Integrated Home and Sustainable Lifestyle Installation categories.
CEDIA is also accepting nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding, creative, innovative, and visionary leadership in the residential electronic systems industry.
