Founded in 1985, the Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards is the foremost program recognizing the achievements of audio professionals. Presented annually by the NAMM Foundation at The NAMM Show, the TEC Awards recognizes the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, live performances, films, television, video games, and other media.

TEC Awards nominations are made by a panel of industry professionals and voted upon by members of various professional organizations and audio industry websites. The awards are divided into two categories: Technical Achievement and Creative Achievement. Through its Hall of Fame, the TEC Awards honors the pioneers of audio technology and the music industry’s most accomplished producers and audio technicians. The Les Paul Award pays tribute to musical artists and others whose work has exemplified the creative application of audio technology.
