PRO AV magazine and PRO AV Online today announced 11 winners of its first annual PRO AV Spotlight Awards program. The Spotlight Awards recognize the best professional audio/video installations designed for corporate, educational, and other non-residential applications.

"We're extremely proud of the Spotlight Awards program," said Brad Grimes, Editor of PRO AV and PRO AV Online. "The enthusiasm of the AV community was greater than we expected in our inaugural year and we're excited to see this program grow in the coming years. It's our way of recognizing some fantastic work in professional audio/video integration that to date has gone largely unrewarded."

Entries came into PRO AV from around the United States and Canada, in vertical market categories including Corporate, Retail, Education, House of Worship, Government, Health Care, Entertainment/Arts, and Hospitality/Restaurant. Entered projects varied in scope from corporate boardrooms to university buildings, with AV budgets ranging from $25,000 to $4 million.

"It wasn't until after the judging that we realized the geographic breadth of the winners," said Grimes. "Almost every PRO AV Spotlight Award winner is from a different state, showing that great work is happening everywhere."
