There will be a lot of sore heads this morning after a wonderful Friday evening at the London Hilton Park Lane where the UK’s #AVtweeps celebrated in some style all that was AV at @AVMag’s annual AV Awards  ceremony.
During the award celebration itself, one wag was heard to comment “Wow! The AVAwards Have AV”and the organisers (and their sponsors) have to be congratulated for putting on a proper AV show.
AV Magazine editor Clive Couldwell took control of his first AV Awards and he will be very pleased with the outcome. He made special note in his opening address about ‘impartiality’ and the judges this year we think did a very good job (even with Spinetix as a laughable ‘Digital Signage Product Of The Year’  but as we point outed earlier “the judges can only judge what is put in front of them”).
Our industry really does need to decide if it wishes to take these AV Awards seriously otherwise the winner’s trophy is not worth a thing. We want to see more entries in each category or no entries at all. It’s that simple.
