Best of InfoComm AwardsNominations are now open 4/18/2016 8:56 PM Eastern
The 3rd annual Best of InfoComm program recognizes outstanding products exhibited at the InfoComm Show that are new since the prior InfoComm Show. Winners are selected by panels of professional users and editors based on descriptions provided by you via the nomination form as well as on judges’ inspection at the convention.
Who can enter?
Any company that exhibits a new product on the exhibit floor of the InfoComm Show. Products need not be shipping but must be shown publicly and anticipated to ship within 12 months. If a product was shown in the same form at last year’s convention it is not eligible. Technology demonstrations are not eligible.
Why should I enter?
Thousands of new products are introduced at the InfoComm each year. Help make yours stand out. Further, every product nominated, whether chosen for an award or not, will be featured in the special Best of Show Program Guide, to be distributed in digital edition form after the convention. Program Guide coverage will be based on the image and description submitted with your entry.
When are entries due?
The deadline is May 23, 2016. We reserve the right to consider late applicants as circumstances dictate. Please note that on-site nominations are not accepted.
How much does it cost to enter?
$595 per product nominated, for consideration by your chosen NewBay magazine. You may submit a given product to multiple magazines, at $595 each.
What if I wish my product to be considered by multiple publications?
Just nominate the product for each by checking the appropriate box(es) on the product’s form; so for example, if Jones Smith Manufacturing wishes to nominate a new product for consideration by three magazines, the nomination price is $1,785 ($595 x 3). The entry form will guide you.
May I enter more than one product?
Yes. There is no limit to the number of products you may nominate. Each requires a nomination form and entry fee(s).
How are the products evaluated?
A panel of judges and editors, chosen in advance by the editors of our publications, will review nominations and choose the winners.
Is my information confidential?
Yes. It will not be published prior to the convention or shared with anyone beyond the judges or editors. Judges will receive nominations after the submission period is closed.
When will you notify winners?
Prior to the conclusion of the InfoComm Show.
What do I get if I win?
Winners receive a winners' logo and an award for display; all nominees and winners will be reported in a special Best of Show Awards Program Guide, to be distributed in eBook form to readers of Sound & Video Contractor, AV Technology, Digital Signage, ProSound News, Mix, Tech & Learning, and Government Video after the convention; content will be based on entry submission images and descriptions. Winners will also be covered in print, online and in newsletters at the discretion of the NewBay editors.
