Voting Now Open for the 33rd NAMM TEC Awards

TEC AwardsVoting is currently open until Dec. 31, 2017 for the 33rd annual NAMM TEC Awards.  The NAMM TEC Awards celebrate the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies, and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live sound, films, television, and video games across 31 categories. Soon to be announced, an honoree who embodies the creative, innovative, and enterprising spirit of Les Paul will be honoured with the Les Paul Innovation Award. The NAMM TEC Hall of Fame, which was created nearly 30 years ago to honour the industry’s most pioneering producers and audio recording professionals, will again induct an industry luminary to its list of honourees.

The NAMM TEC Awards will held the night of Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel during The NAMM Show.

Voting for the 33rd Annual NAMM TEC Awards is open to pro audio and music industry professionals, those that make their living involved in a related field to music products, professional audio, and / or sound production. The general public and enthusiasts are not eligible to vote and any submissions from non-professionals will not be counted. To verify your role in the industry, the organization requires the voter’s full name, the company they work for, their title, and email address. Only one ballot per professional will be counted and organizers recommend completing the full ballot within one session, though voters may come back to their ballot as many times as they like during the voting period to complete additional category sections.

To help facilitate the voting process, NAMM has created the Digital Voter’s Guide which outlines relevant information for all nominees across 23 Technical Achievement and 8 Creative Achievement categories. The voting process is facilitated by a secure online ballot powered by Broadjam, a third party voting service.
