The NAMM Foundation and Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards

The TEC Awards was founded in 1985 by the publishers of Mix magazine and subsequently presented by the TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio, a 501(c)(3) charity devoted to recognizing and furthering excellence in audio, video, music and other communications media arts.

In 2013 the TEC Foundation was merged with the NAMM Foundation, the educational and charitable arm of NAMM, presenters of the largest trade show for the music products industry. As it approaches its third decade, the TEC Awards under the auspices of NAMM continues to grow both technically and artistically and has become established as one of the entertainment industry's most important annual events.
