The entries will be judged by a panel of industry professionals and experts selected by the EC&M and CEE News editorial staffs. The panel will review all entries and narrow the field to finalists in each category.

The category finalists will have their product information displayed at the Electric West 2002 show in Las Vegas, NV, in February and published in the March issues of EC&M and CEE News.

EC&M and CEE News subscribers will vote for the Product of the Year using the Reader Service Card in the March issues and through online ballots that will appear on this Web site. The Product of the Year Platinum Award winner will be determined by readers’ votes and the decision of our expert panel. In the event of a tie, the EC&M and CEE News editorial staffs will cast the deciding vote. The winner will be announced at the Electric 2002 show in New York City in June.
