The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) is holding its annual Electronic Lifestyles Designer Awards, which recognize excellence in the residential electronic systems industry.

The awards are broken into the following categories: Home Theater, Media Room, Integrated Home, Special Project, Hidden Installation, Show Room, and Special Project.

Each entry is reviewed and judged over a three-month period based on specific criteria put forth by two qualified panels judging on the technical aspect of the project and the design/aesthetics of the project. The technical panel is made up of five CEDIA residential electronic systems contractor members. The design panel is made up of members from the American Institute of Architects and the American Society of Interior Designers.

Voting now Open New for 2010, CEDIA has partnered with HGTVPro to give consumers and professionals an option to select their favorite projects. The CEDIA/ Audience Choice Award voting ends Sept. 10, and the winners will be announced at CEDIA Expo 2010 on Sept. 25. Winners will be selected in the Large Home Theater, Integrated Home, and Media Room categories.

Over the next week, we will round up the entries from each category for your viewing. Today we start with large home theaters. CEDIA has complete descriptions, equipment lists and additional photos in the CEDIA Idea Book, which will be available for purchase onsite at CEDIA EXPO and online in a PDF format.
