DDA Deadline Nears

TROY, Mich. — The deadline for entry into The NEWS’ 2013 Dealer Design Awards (DDA) is soon approaching.

The 2013 DDA recognize contractor-oriented products with features that assist in installation, maintenance, and service of installed products to the HVACR industry. The early deadline for entry is March 22 ($50 per entry). The final deadline is March 29 ($100 per entry).

Judging will be conducted by a panel of independent HVACR contractors. Entries will be rated based on ease of installation, maintenance, service, overall design, uniqueness, and industry impact. Entrants are asked to keep submissions and documentation succinct to make it as easy as possible for judges to recognize the products’ positive attributes.

There is a limit of three entries per company/brand. A product can be entered into only one product category. The NEWS reserves the right to reassign a product entry to a more appropriate product category, if necessary.
