Launched way back in the pre-Brexit halcyon days of 2014, SVI’s Install & Technology Solutions Awards is back to celebrate the best of Custom Install for its third glorious year; and, having seen so many stunning installations so far this year already, we’re expecting to be dazzled by your CI design.

This year sponsored by purveyor of high-end Hi-Fi and CI products Connected Distribution (, with entry open as of August 19th, getting your cutting-edge CI work before the swivel-eyes of our panel of obsessive ITSA judges (judges yet to be announced!) is a simple matter of picking your chose category and submitting 1000 words (or thereabouts) on the latest and greatest example of your work, covering what your brief was, any issues that arose and how you worked around them, what specific CI kit you employed and why, and an explanation of how you completed the brief to the client’s satisfaction.

All winners will receive coverage of their outstanding install within the hallowed pages of this upstanding organ, an award certificate declaring them installers above all others and, naturally, a licence to perform an elaborate and, frankly, over-the-top victory dance in front of your competition, each and every time you encounter them.
