Which vehicles are eligible to win the SEMA Award?
The SEMA Award is open to all participating OEMs at the SEMA Show. Eligible vehicles must be current or next model year to be considered. This award is for new vehicles only. Understanding that certain vehicles capture our hearts more than others, a panel of aftermarket industry experts narrows the wide selection of vehicles down to a defined group of popularly accessorized “SEMA Award Nominees.” From this list, the aftermarket community will select the “Hottest” in each of five key categories:
How do I cast my vote for the Hottest vehicles?
Each exhibiting manufacturer at the SEMA Show has one vote in each of the five categories. Vote wisely! Vote for the vehicles that represent the greatest opportunity for your business.
