The First Annual AVNation Awards

I know. Do we really need another AV industry awards? There are those that look at a product’s viability, its technical adeptness or how it pushes the industry forward. There are those that look at how they exhibit at a particular trade show, and even a few that encourage you to vote on them.
So, why did we feel the need to put together another set of awards? The first reason is actually what makes AVNation a bit different than other audio visual media outlets. Everyone from the top down is a member of the AV industry. We have programmers, engineers, marketing professionals, consultants, and manufacturer’s reps. The categories we have come up with come from our experiences in the field. The second reason is we wanted a way to look back at the year.
Here’s how it will work. You, our wonderful readers and listeners, will spend the next few weeks filling out this form (click here) and letting us know what you think. The questions and categories will changed depending on where you are in the industry. In other words, if you are an integrator you will get asked a few different questions than if you are a technology manager. At the end of November we will tabulate all the nominations, filter for duplicate email addresses, and then let you participate in the voting process. This will last until the end of December. The first week of January we will announce the winners. Pretty simple.
Awards like these and others are a way for the industry to reward those people, companies, and products that make their lives and their jobs better. We hope you’ll take a few moments and let us know what you think.
