Android Authority CES 2020 Top Picks Awards

As the new year fireworks fizzle, CES reignites the industry for the year. CES 2020 kicks off the tech calendar and sets the tone for everything that follows. With exciting new products across more product categories than we can count, it’s almost go-time and there isn’t a moment to lose!

Once again, Android Authority will be holding our annual CES Top Picks Awards where we award the best products and innovations in the industry. For the early submission of embargoed products for CES 2020 awards consideration, you can find the submission form at the bottom of this page. Android Authority honors all embargoes.

Are you looking to secure coverage of your product at CES 2020? Apply for consideration here.

We will issue multiple awards across the following categories:

  • Smartphones/foldables
  • Laptops/Chromebooks
  • Audio
  • Smart home
  • Smartwatches/fitness tech
  • Best concept/innovation
  • Mobile accessories
  • Rising star

Check out our CES 2019 Awards!

Our presence at CES last year was substantial, but we’ve grown significantly as a publication in the intervening year, so we expect even higher audience engagement and brand visibility. A roundup of last year’s CES coverage can be found here, and you can see our previous CES award winners here and our 2018 winners here. Our CES 2019 coverage reached millions of early adopters, with us reviewing many of the products we spent our time with in Las Vegas as the year went on. 

Sound Guys CES 2020 Top Picks Awards

Our audio-obsessed sister site, Sound Guys, will also be present in Las Vegas and will be issuing their own CES Top Picks Awards. The Sound Guys team is bigger than ever and that means even more ears finely tuned to the world of headphones, earbuds, and speakers. Sound Guys has established a reputation as a trusted name for buying advice and go-to resource on sound quality.

*Nominations for Sound Guys‘ CES 2020 Top Picks Awards will be accepted through Android Authority‘s submissions form below. Winners will receive cross-promotion across both sites.

Our awards, like our sites, are consumer-focused. Eligibility for the CES 2020 Top Picks Awards across both sites are therefore restricted to consumer products and the innovations that influence consumer tech. Eligible products and technologies must make their formal debut at CES 2020: that means they were either first announced at CES 2020 or first presented to the public at the show. 

Products are considered based on their degree of innovation and the potential impact that they will have for the average consumer. We’re interested in products that challenge the status quo and promise to change the technological landscape over the course of the next few years. Innovations and concepts are a much broader category to judge, but once again, consumer impact is the guiding principle.

Although we accept multiple entries, we trust that brands will only submit products that they believe meet these challenging requirements.

Android Authority and SoundGuys honor all embargoes and NDAs.

Because our winners will be announced on January 8, 2019, it’s advantageous to receive as many early entries for consideration as possible. Beyond our usual world-class event coverage, award winners will receive special additional site and social visibility across our network. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas this January, but we hope to hear from you sooner. If you’d like to nominate your product for consideration, please fill out the form below.
