Brilliance Awards

Presented annually at our Fall event, the TecHome Builder/Housing Transformation Brilliance Awards celebrate the year’s most innovative products, services and solutions with powerful promotions and publicity that far outweigh the cost for entry at $995.


Each year, a carefully selected panel of homebuilding and multifamily executives experienced in innovation or home technology use a point system to evaluate the level of innovation, value, and excellence evident in each entry.

Judges use the photos, videos and descriptions you provide to rate your entries. The clearer, more compelling, and creative your entry is, the better your chances of winning!

To prevent lobbying, identities of the judges are not disclosed until the awards celebration.

Pricing & Eligibility

Each entry costs $995, with no limit on the number of entries per company.

Products and services launched or enhanced January 1, 2022 through November 1, 2023 are eligible for entry.

Entries close 9/20/2023.
