Consumer Technology Association (CTA) members and non-members are eligible to enter the Mark of Excellence System Integrator Awards program. Select from more than 30 award categories to enter your project. You may enter the same project into more than one category; however, each is considered a separate entry, thus a separate fee is applied.

  • Home installation projects must also be new to the awards program and completed by no earlier than August 1, 2014 and no later than August 1, 2015.
  • Submissions for products must be for products that are currently available or will be in the next year; however, the availability of the product will be a consideration weighed by the judges.
  • Both CTA members and non-members are eligible. 
  • A project can be submitted into more than one category; however, each is considered a separate entry, and a separate fee is applied. 
  • Entries must be submitted via the online submission process. Hardcopy entries are no longer accepted. 
  • Photographs must accompany each entry for judging purposes, with at least two different views of the different phases of the project. Photos will be submitted as a jpg file. Up to ten photographs, including photo montages, may be submitted for each entry. 
  • An entry is qualified for judging when all required sections are completed, images are included and all fees paid. CTA is not responsible for the follow-up of incomplete entries. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. 
  • All entries forms are the property of CTA. 
  • An entry may be moved to a different category based on the recommendation of the judging panel, without consent from the submitter. 
  • By entering the competition, the submitter grants CTA permission to use the entry and images of the entered project in any promotional material produced by CTA and its sponsors.
  • CTA reserves the exclusive right to set, modify and interpret all conditions regarding this competition without claim for damage or recourse of any kind. 
  • Each company selected as a finalist and/or winner honoree grants CTA permission, without compensation, to use its name and photograph/likeness and/or entry in promoting this or similar awards programs in the future.
  • Materials must meet CTA standards for appropriate product presentation and taste, and may be asked to be resubmitted or disqualified at any time, if they are deemed inappropriate. Any attempt by a submitter to deliberately damage the MOE website or undermine the legitimate operation of the call for entries may be in violation of criminal and civil laws. Should such an attempt be made, all entries submitted by such person will be disqualified. CTA reserves the right to seek damages from any such person fully permitted by law. 
  • In the event a virus compromises the competition, non-authorized human intervention, tampering, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of CTA, which corrupts or impairs the administration, security, fairness or proper operation of the call for entries, CTA reserves the right in its sole discretion to suspend, modify or terminate the call for entries. Should the call for entries be terminated prior to the stated closing date, CTA reserves the right to announce honorees based on the nominations received before the termination date.
  • CTA reserves the right to rescind any awards granted to honorees that have misrepresented their entry in this competition. 
  • Unless otherwise stated, entry fees are non-refundable. 
  • The judges' decisions are final.
