By RS Staff Published: July 18, 2017 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 D-Tools is seeking entries for its annual contest: the Design Awards. D-Tools is pursuing System Integrator (SI) software users’ success stories and project designs that display how the software was used and how it has positively affected their business and ROI. Winning success stories will be selected from a diverse group of D-Tools users. The contest is open now to those using the D-Tools software platform for residential and commercial projects of any size. Winners will be announced in September, during CEDIA in San Diego, CA. Contest categories include Best Residential, Best Commercial, Most Unique, and Best Overall Winners which will be selected by both the D-Tools product team and select D-Tools Certified Partners. The winning entries will be judged on a number of criteria, including originality, deep use of D-Tools’ software, overall system design, and which entries best demonstrate the system designer’s knowledge of the software. Winners will receive prizes from the contest sponsors and D-Tools Manufacturer Vantage Point (MVP) partners, including KanexPro, IC Realtime, Leon Speakers, Atlona, and Terra Speakers. A reception celebrating the D-Tools Design Awards will take place during CEDIA in D-Tools booth #3035. The deadline for submitting projects is August 11, 2017.
