Awards Judged by Industry Pros

We created the Pro Tool Innovation Awards because we were in a great place to tell professionals and serious DIYers which of these new tools really tipped the scale in features, performance, and/or value. The awards are judged by professional tradesman—including general contractors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, MRO professionals, and woodworkers—as well as the staff of some of our sponsoring media professionals who specialize in construction-related tools. This provides excellent industry insight and perspective from people who have a lot of practical experience in using great tools in the residential and commercial construction industry.

Media Sponsor Judges
Our media sponsor judges have their hands on literally hundreds of tools each year. Many also get to put their hands on 100’s more at media events and trade shows.

Professional Tradesmen Judges
On the Pro side, our tradesmen judges use hundreds more power and hand tools which run the gamut across all categories of products entered into the Pro Tool Innovation Awards.

All told, the Pro Tool Innovation Awards judges are comprised of a team with decades of experience and which handles, operates, and/or tests over 500 new power tools, hand tools, accessories, and fasteners each year.

Trust the Pros

When you enter your tools and products in the Pro Tool Innovation Awards you can trust that they’re being evaluated by the Pros who use these kinds of tools every day. Innovation is what they look for—and anything that’s lighter, stronger, better, faster, or which provides more features is something that gets recognized quickly.
