Call for Entries: CES 2018 Innovation Awards

WHAT: The Consumer Technology Association, owner and producer of CES – the global stage for innovation – today announced the official call for CES® 2018 Innovation Award entries. The annual prestigious awards competition, recognized globally across the technology industry, honors outstanding design and engineering across more than 25 consumer technology categories, including – but not limited to – Software and Mobile Apps, Smart Home, Vehicle Intelligence, Video Displays, Virtual Reality and Wearable Technologies. New categories this year include Cybersecurity, Smart Cities and Robotics.

WHEN: Applicants are encouraged to apply early and can submit entries through September 15. The first 200 applicants will receive a $200 early bird discount. Honorees will be announced at CES Unveiled New York on November 9 and the winning products will be on display at CES 2018 in the Innovation Awards Showcase in the Venetian Ballroom at The Venetian.

DETAILS: Each product category has an expert, three-member judging team composed of an independent industrial designer, an independent engineer and a member of the trade media. Entries are judged on engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, use/function and user value, unique/novel features and how the design and innovation directly compare to other products in the market.

Honorees will receive additional Innovation Awards benefits, including use of the honoree logos on marketing assets and product packaging, exposure on CES.tech, listing in the CES issue of It Is Innovation (i3) and an Innovation Awards Honoree trophy.
