Innovation Award Honorees

See current and former award honorees who showcase the best examples of engineering, design and innovation.

About the Innovation Awards Program

The program recognizes two levels of honorees among the product categories:

  • Honoree: A product that scores above the threshold set for a specific category.

  • Best of Innovation: Given to only the highest-rated product in each category, or multiple in the event of a tie. Best of Innovation in each category is not guaranteed.

The program is open to any individual, organization or authorized agent who manufactures, designs, engineers or promotes consumer technology products. Product entered must be available in the market for the first time between April 1, 2020, and April 1, 2021. A panel of industry expert judges review applications in each product category based on specific criteria.

CTA does not test or endorse the Innovation award-winning products.
