Friday May1, 2020. We reserve the right to consider late applicants as circumstances dictate.
It should be new since last NAB Show. A product need not be introduced literally at this show; you might for instance have shown a product some months prior at AES or IBC. Judges are instructed to consider if it’s “new to the 2020 Spring season”
Judges also have discretion in determining whether a product is new, and in general, we lean toward including, not rejecting. But if a product was shown in the same form at last year’s convention it is not eligible. (If you showed it last NAB in preview form, it may raise questions for judges; include an explanation in your nomination; for instance, “We showed this in beta last year but did not nominate it, and now it is shipping.” Of course, if you nominated it last year, it’s hard to make the case it’s new.)
The winners will be announced by May 14 to coincide with the NAB Show Express.
Yes. A product may be nominated by an organisation other than its manufacturer (e.g., a distributor/dealer), as long as the manufacturer is aware and the product is only nominated once per Future brand. Please make this clear in the nomination text, as: “The Acme 1000 Rocket, made by Acme and nominated by dealer Coyote Products…”
