You don’t have to rent a tux for Honeywell’s “Best Dressed” A/V Rack contest. Just design and install one excellent home theater and show it off to the company.

“The contest is a chance for installers to flaunt their most lavish home theater projects to command the respect (and awe) of the CE industry,” according to Honeywell.

For their trouble, dealers will pick up a $200 American Express Gift Card, and all “deserving” entries, including non-winners, will have their photos and names posted on the Honeywell Cable web site, the purpose being to gain more business-building exposure.

To enter the contest, Honeywell cable customers should e-mail a digital photo of their “best dressed” A/V rack to Honeywell will select winners based on the rack’s distinctiveness, as well as the challenges the installer faced to meet the homeowner’s satisfaction.

Not required, but certainly encouraged: Add a short project description along with the pics.

“The Best Dressed contest gives the installers of these incredible systems the recognition they richly deserve,” said David Coleman, sales manager for the CE channel of Genesis Series Cable Products, Honeywell Security & Custom Electronics.
