CEDIA Revamps Electronic Lifestyles Awards
CEDIA this week announced some changes to the Electronic Lifestyles Awards Program, including to the categories and the judging process.
The association announced that categories for the awards have been revised, to include home theater, media room, integrated home, innovative solution, personal craft, media room under $25,000, and integrated home under $25,000.
CEDIA will also announce finalists for the home technology professional awards prior to the CEDIA Expo, with winners announced at the show. This will eliminate the previous "Gold/Silver/Bronze" structure. And manufacturer awards will once again be presented, with the categories of "Best New Product" and "Product Hall of Fame."
Also, the names of the judges will be revealed in advance, and entrants will be told the judging criteria prior to the entry deadline.
Entries are now open for all awards, with a deadline set for May 18.
