Our nomination period begins now and will end at 11:00am on Friday, June 3rd, 2016. Press and Industry members attending our Preview Day on Thursday, June 2nd will also be given the opportunity to nominate newly released products on-site.
As we continue to build this young and already highly regarded audio show into the best ever, we want to recognize those who contribute to the growth of our industry and encourage innovation every year. We’re looking for nominations across a variety of categories. In order to qualify, the product must be a new 2016 launch—unveilings from 2015 and previous years will not be considered.
