Does anyone know of any home theater competitions that are available for submission?

There are quite a few nice theaters that are on these threads and I know electronic house has a contest yearly for Under $25,000 construction build, 25 - $50,000, 50 - $100,000, then $100,000 & above categories.

It would be nice for some people to get rewarded for the hard work instilled into their home projects.

If there are no other online contest or competitions, I am thinking of starting an online based home theater competition with trophy prices and potentially cash prices if I can get some local sponsorships.

Let me know your thoughts and feedback?

I think you'll find that most, if not all, of the existing competitions are for the pro's to show off their projects.

Cheers,

Correct! That's what it seems like but I would like to be able to acknowledge those whom houses the theaters are in. (The proud home owners that helped or possibly completely came up with the design they wanted built).

My question is simply if people have not seen anything like it, as a dedicated AV/home theater community... Does anyone think people would partake?

Would you enter your home theater? I do photography and have a few connections to magazines that I could get 1-3 full page articles in and it sparked my thoughts on being a perfect way of helping to build our home theater community/getting exposure of peoples amazing work and builds which in return also gives others interest in the probability of owning their own theater one day.

Thank you for reading,

Dewayne Jones

I wouldn't be interested. My guess is with proper publicity, contest rules, and prizes that quite a few people would enter.

Willmo with a lot of people entering possibly... Is that what would detour your interest level?

Thank you for your feedback.

No, contests involve too much subjectivity in determining the winner.
