Voting Process

Voting for the 38th Annual NAMM TEC Awards is open to professionals that make their primary living in the music, sound and entertainment technology industries. The general public, including pro audio enthusiasts, are not eligible to vote.

 

The TEC Awards Finalist Panel is comprised of audio experts from across manufacturing, studio, retail and event production and will vote on the final slate of nominees.

 

The NAMM TEC and finalist community are invited to vote, including audio and entertainment technology professionals from studios, venues, houses of worship, audiences of nominated companies, and members of the NAMM retail community that sell pro audio and related gear.

 

Ballot links are also shared with the membership of prominent associations, including the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Producers & Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy, Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.), Cinema Audio Society (CAS), Motion Picture Sound Editors, and the Entertainment Technology Services Association (ESTA).

 

The voting period for the 38th Annual NAMM TEC Awards will open December 21, 2022 and close March 1, 2023.

 

The inclusive voting process is facilitated by the Digital Voter's Guide (released on December 21, 2023 to see last year's edition, click here), containing images and descriptions of all products and projects nominated across 21 Outstanding Technical Achievement and the Studio Design Project categories.

 

All voters are asked for the following demographic information to identify their role in the industry: First and Last Name, Company, Title, Email. Only one ballot per unique email will be counted. Voters may come back to their ballot as many times as they like during the voting period to complete additional category sections.

 

Voting for the 38th Annual NAMM TEC Awards is powered by Broadjam, a third-party voting service, and the winners’ names are kept in confidence until the celebration of pro audio and sound production on Friday, April 13, 2023.

Thank you to our media and association voting supporters!
