CEDIA Awards 2019

SONA is delighted to announce that our very own Simon Fulstow is on the judging panel of the prestigious CEDIA Awards this year.

As a multi-award winning CEDIA member, SONA’s Simon Fulstow was asked to take part on the judging panel this year.  With over 20 years experience in the business, and a CEDIA member dedicated to the improvement of standards and reputation of the industry as a whole, Simon is looking forward to being on the other side of the judging table for once.

“We have selected our panel of judges due to the wealth of knowledge and expertise they all hold,” comments Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA Global President and CEO. “Involving previous award winners as judges also provides the panel with an in-depth understanding of the requirements that lead to becoming a CEDIA Award winner. The judges’ experience — combined with the strict entry requirements — will ensure high standards of review for each and every entry and only the best of the best will make it. These judges dedicate a huge amount of time to complete the rigorous judging process, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.”

Simon comments “It’s an honour to be asked to sit on the judging panel this year.  Having both won a number of awards, and been a finalist, I know first-hand the level of commitment, dedication and detailing it takes to create projects at this level, and I’m really excited to see the talent and standards this year.  I think the awards give so much inspiration and aspiration to other members and I’m thrilled to be sat on the other side of the judging table for a change this year!

The 2019 CEDIA Awards ceremony will be hosted at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on Thursday 26thSeptember.
