It's time to begin crafting your entries to the 2018 Mark of Excellence Awards, presented by the Consumer Technology Association's (CTA) TechHome Division and CE Pro. The winners will be announced in January 2018 at CES in Las Vegas.
The awards recognize some of the best residential and commercial custom installation projects performed by professional integrators, as well as top consumer technology products and services that are primarily targeted at the custom installation channel. Each year, manufacturers, distributors and systems integrators enter to compete for the coveted awards.
Manufacturers, there are 22 different product categories you may submit for, including lighting control, home control, energy efficiency, displays and more. Meanwhile, custom installers can select from 15 categories to submit projects ranging from whole-house automation, security and home theater.
Nominations are also accepted for the CTA TechHome Integrator of the Year.
Remember, if you enter a product submission, the product must have been released within 12 months prior to the award announcement date or planned to be released within the next six months after the awards announcement date.
Each category has a judging team of systems integrators, manufacturers, members of the trade press or industry consultants. Each entry is given a numeric score. The top scoring entries in each category will be named finalists.
