Nominate your product here! Due date and entry fee information are listed below.


What are the Best of Show Awards?
The program recognizes outstanding products exhibited at the spring NAB Show that are new since the prior NAB Show. Winners are selected by panels of professional users and editors based on descriptions provided by you via the nomination form as well as on judges’ inspection at the convention. This program replaces several previous award programs from the NewBay publications listed above.

Who can enter?
Any company that exhibits a new product on the exhibit floor of the NAB Show. Products need not be shipping but must be shown publicly. If a product was shown in the same form at last year’s convention it is not eligible.

Why should I enter?
Thousands of new products are introduced at the NAB Show each year. Help make yours stand out. Further, every product nominated, whether chosen for an award or not, will be featured in the special Best of Show Program Guide, to be distributed in eBook digital form after the convention.

When are entries due?
The deadline has been extended to the close of business April 2, 2014. We reserve the right to consider late applicants as circumstances dictate. Please note that on-site nominations are not accepted.

How much does it cost to enter?
$495 per product nominated, for consideration by your chosen NewBay magazine. You may submit a given product to multiple magazines, at $495 each.

What if I wish my product to be considered by multiple publications?
Just nominate the product for each by checking the appropriate box(es) on the product’s form; so for example, if Jones Smith Manufacturing wishes to nominate a new product for consideration by three magazines, the nomination price is $1,485 ($495 x 3). The entry form will guide you.

May I enter more than one product?
Yes. There is no limit to the number of products you may nominate. Each requires a nomination form and entry fee(s).

How are the products evaluated?
A panel of judges and editors, chosen in advance by the editors of our publications, will review nominations and choose the winners.

Is my information confidential?
Yes. It will not be published prior to the convention or shared with anyone beyond the judges or editors.

What do I get if I win?

All nominated products will be featured in the special Best of Show Awards Program Guide, to be distributed in digital edition form to readers of those publications after the convention.
