Voting Process

The nominees and winners of the TEC Awards are determined through a three-step process. In June, a “Call for Entries” is posted on the TEC Awards website, and emailed to audio manufacturers and sound production professionals. Initial selections are made by a Nominating Panel comprising more than 100 prominent professionals from all areas of the audio industry.

Nominees are selected in 29 categories of Technical Achievement and Creative Achievement. Eligible nominees are those projects or products that, in the opinion of the Nominating Panel, represent superior accomplishment in their respective fields. This year, these products or works must have been completed, released or performed during the period beginning September 1, 2013 and ending August 31, 2014. Names of the nominated products and projects will be posted on the TEC Awards website in October and will be published in NewBay Media’s Digital Voter’s Guide.

In December, invitations to vote for the 30th Annual NAMM TEC Awards will be sent to subscribers to leading pro audio publications and to members of various professional organizations, the names of which will be published in the coming weeks.

Voters will register and vote with a secure, online ballot, and their selections will be tabulated by an independent company. The winners’ names will be kept in confidence until the TEC Awards ceremony, to be presented on Saturday, January 24 at the 2015 NAMM Show.
