Winners will be announced in September, during CEDIA in Dallas, TX. 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 communicate and demonstrate the system designer’s knowledge of the software. “The D-Tools Design Awards serve to both challenge and reward those using the D-Tools System Integrator platform to enhance and optimize their workflows. However, the awards also serve as annual recognition of the most distinguished projects presented by residential and commercial system integrators worldwide.” said Adam Stone, founder of D-Tools.
