The TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio, based in Walnut Creek, Calif., announces the nominees for the 27th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, to be held Friday, January 20, 2012, at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif. Co-presented by the TEC Foundation and NAMM, the TEC Awards is the pro audio industry's most prestigious awards show honoring outstanding achievement in product innovation and sound production.

The nominations comprise 19 categories of Technical Achievement in product design, and will be followed by an announcement of nominees in eight categories of Creative Achievement in sound production. The nominations are based on product entries by audio manufacturers, and were made by a select panel of more than 160 professionals in numerous audio specialties. Nominated products and projects must have been introduced during the eligibility period of July 1, 2010 to August 30, 2011.

The Technical Achievement categories have been expanded from 17 to 19 with the introduction of two new awards categories: Musical Instrument Amplification & Effects Technology, and Amplification Hardware/Studio & Sound Reinforcement, including a wide variety of amplification products used by performers and audio professionals for both stage and studio applications.
