The NAMM TEC Awards council has announced a call for entries to be honored at next year’s The NAMM Show. Beginning March 28, companies are encouraged to enter their products and/or projects in one of 23 Technical Achievement and eight Creative Achievement categories. Products that were submitted, but not nominated, for last year’s TEC Awards, introduced in July or August 2017 are eligible for re-entry. The call for entries period will close at 11:59 p.m. PT May 28, 2018.
In June 2018, the nominating panel, a group of industry experts from all facets of the pro-audio and sound-production industries, will review the products and projects submitted in each category to create the final slate of nominees. Final nominees are those products and projects that, in the opinion of the nominating panel, represent superior accomplishment in their respective fields.
The nominees for all TEC Award categories will be announced at a special event at the 2018 Summer NAMM Show, taking place in Nashville from June 28-30.
The voting period will commence on Nov. 14 and continue through Dec. 31. Additional information on the voting period and eligibility will be announced in November. The TEC Awards will return to next year’s The NAMM Show on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Hilton Anaheim Pacific ballroom.
