Welcome to the AV Awards 2014


Hello future AV Award winners!

Welcome to our brand new site for entering this year’s event and booking your star-studded evening at the Awards ceremony itself – the biggest night in the industry’s calendar.

This year we’re at a great new venue - the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane.

It promises to be a great evening, so put 26 September in your diaries right now!

But first – a few tips about entering:

Deadline – entries must be in by Friday 16th May 2014.


Make sure you’re eligible

All product launches and innovations, manufacturers’, project and company information MUST relate to the 15 months from 1 February 2013 to 1 May 2014.

Last year we had to discard a number of entries that weren’t eligible.


Who can enter?

Companies with operations within the EMEA region, but projects can be from anywhere in the world.


Be clear and concise

It’s a long day for the judges and you must make your entries stand out from the crowd.

Use compelling words and an active voice. Write with verve and you’ll stand out from the copy and paste brigade.


Include video and multimedia  

Get your customers on the record talking about what they’ve achieved with your tech. The judges are really keen on this and a short piece to camera can transform an entry.


Don’t leave it to the last minute

Make sure you’ve got enough time to create that compelling Awards entry we’re all expecting to drop into our lap on judging day.


Put someone on the job

This person isn’t necessarily going to be the closest to the projects you’re submitting, nor the finest copywriter, but he or she will take ownership of your Awards entries.

Co-ordination is essential, or you’ll wind up missing deadlines and rushing through your submissions.


Well - think that’s it for the moment. We’ll put up more helpful bits of advice when we need to.

So, for now..

Good Luck!
