Hard to believe as it may be, this year’s LILIN-sponsored SVI Trade Awards is actually the 11th we held, meaning that we’ve been handing out the gongs to the great and good of the custom installation world since back in the dark old days of 2007, before all the technological wonders we enjoy today were even dreamt of, such as iPads, 4G, and 3D TVs. Delete that last one.
Naturally, all things must grow and evolve and, as such, mixing things up a bit for the sake of both light-hearted variety and a broodingly draconian sense of security over the reliability of the results, this year the Awards will be split over two stages:
Opening on November 22nd, stage one will encourage product nomination in each category from you, our beloved readers. So, head to our nominations page at svimag.com/awards before the closing date of January 17th and make your mark, standing up for the AV and custom install kit and people you believe in.
Once all the nominations have been sorted by some poor unpaid intern we’ve roped in under the misleading idea of a glamourous career in publishing, we will then open the doors for voting on said products and people on February 8th, prior to shutting those doors again firmly on April 25th.
EVERYONE’S A WINNER
Except, of course, not everyone’s a winner at all and, indeed, once the votes are tallied up by our crack team of talliers, the actual winners of the LILIN-sponsored SVI Trade Awards 2019 will be announced to the imagined strains of Tina Turner’s Simply the Best on May 31st in our June issue.
The prize, as ever, is the unwavering love of the entire CI industry and, of course, the unending kudos that comes with that, given form in the shape of the ability to wave your win in everyone’s faces via the use of our ‘Winner!’ logos across all your marketing materials.
What’s more, this year you can win a top-notch LILIN LD2222E4 1080P HD Dome IP Camera just for taking part!
So, to have your say and enter to win, simply head on over to svimag.com/awards button and nominate away…

WIN: A LILIN LD2222E4 1080P HD Dome IP Camera
As an added incentive to get involved (not that you’ll need one, of course), by simply making your nomination in Stage 1 and voting in stage 2 you’ll be put in our metaphorical hat to win one of two LD2222E4 1080P HD Dome IP Cameras!
The fixed dome LD2222 features built-in Sense Up+ technology to deliver stunning video in low-light conditions, and utilises intelligent image signal processing, 2D WDR function, AGC control, and 3D noise reduction to successfully deliver the ultimate low-light image without motion blur. Plus, there’s support with PoE, privacy mask, white balance, and minimum illumination 0.2 Lux at F1.6 Low Light Mode, making the LD2222E4 the perfect electronic eye for any smart security situation.
