We're pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, Reviewed.com has been named the official Editors' Choice Media Partner at CES 2015. Last year we brought you the biggest, best, and most comprehensive coverage from the show floor. Now we're going to do it all over again. CES is the launching place of the year's most exciting tech, and we'll be there every step of the way.
If you're a reader, prepare for the onslaught of new products. If you're a company that wants its product to be considered, read the FAQ below. Good luck and may the best products win!
What is the Reviewed.com CES Editors’ Choice program?
CES 2015 marks the second year of partnership between Reviewed.com and the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). We will award debuting products announced at CES that we, as editors, believe deserve commendation. Winners will be promoted by both Reviewed.com and USATODAY.com, as well as in a special print pullout section of USA TODAY.
What product categories are eligible?
We are considering products and services in the categories of Imaging, Home Theater, Smartphones, Tablets, Watches, Headphones, 3D Printers / Maker-Friendly, Laptops/Computing, Connected Home, Large Appliance, Small Appliance, Automotive, Gaming, Start-up, Parenting, Wearables, and Health & Fitness. In particular, we’re looking for products that excel in one or more of the following criteria: great technology, great innovation, great design, and great value.
The product must be new for 2015, and must be planned to ship that year with a specific SKU. Prototypes and proof-of-concept products are generally not eligible. Eligibility of a product is solely at the discretion of the editors.
How do I submit a product for consideration?
Companies are free to submit as many products as they like in any of the categories. In fact, it’s in your interest to make us aware of as many new products as possible. You can email email@example.com to send us information, arrange for a loan unit to be mailed to us, or schedule a visit to our offices.
When does the submission process begin?
Immediately, starting on November 15, 2014.
What is the deadline for submissions?
We will stop considering new products on January 6th at 3pm PT (12pm EST). To best ensure your product is considered, we strongly encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible.
I missed the window to submit my product.
That’s okay. Our editorial staff is diligently seeking out nominations on its own, so if you have a stellar product, there’s a chance we’ll already know about it.
Who can vote?
The voting procedure is strictly limited to the editorial staff, which adheres to the rigorous ethical standards of Reviewed.com. No outside parties are allowed into the voting process.
When are the winning products announced?
The Editors’ Choice winning products will be announced on January 7th online at Reviewed.com and USATODAY.com, and will appear in the USA TODAY print paper during the week of CES.
My product has won an award. Are there restrictions about how I can promote it?
Congratulations. We do, however, require explicit permission to use the Reviewed.com logo and the Editors’ Choice badge. Contact email@example.com for details.
