As you all know, last year’s SVI Trade Awards smashed all previous records like plates at the culmination of a particularly violent Greek meal, with a simply epic number of you voting for your favourite products, manufacturers, distributors and integrators; so the question is: can the LILIN-sponsored 2015 Trade Awards do even better?
Changing the format slightly for 2015, whereas in previous years the Awards have been a simple case of ‘vote and be done’, for these 8th annual SVI Trade Awards, we’ve adopted a slightly new approach that will effectively eliminate any attempts at cheeky multiple vote cheating…
STRICTLY COME VOTING
Yes, the voting format for 2015 will now have all the strictness of a Soho dominatrix. The usual nomination free-for-all that you’ve all come to know and abide over the past seven years will still exist, but unless full model numbers and voter name, company name and job function are included on the form, the vote will be discounted – see? Strict.
Of course, it’s still a simple process of going online to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KDRLMPC, filling in the online form found therein and pressing submit to have your say, just that now the SVI Awards security noose is tighter than a Scottish stereotype to ensure one man/woman = one vote (in each category, obviously).
GOING FOR GOLD
Once voting closes on April 10th, this year’s lucky unpaid intern will be locked in the SVI basement for the count up and, once he/she has completed his/her task, we will be ready to announce our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in the May issue of SVI, out on May 1st, ensuring much subsequent rejoicing.
IN IT TO WIN IT
Winners of the 2015 SVI Trade Awards will receive a coveted Awards certificate and winner logos to use in their marketing materials, not to mention the undying respect of the entire AV and CI industry, the right to brag in public places in front of the competition, and the kind of warm feeling that only comes with knowing your job is a job done well!
