vehicle featured at the SEMA Show.

Owners of select vehicle models may be able to have their cars or trucks featured at the 2011 SEMA Show, taking place Tuesday–Friday, November 1–4, 2011, in Las Vegas. Through the SEMA Award Contender Contest, owners of a SEMA Award contender vehicle are invited to submit a video clip highlighting the vehicle’s modifications for a chance to have the vehicle featured at the SEMA Show, along with credentials and amenities to attend the annual trade-only event.

A total of 39 vehicle models have been named as SEMA Award contenders. While the actual SEMA Award winners will be selected by exhibitors based on the vehicles they choose to display in their booths at the SEMA Show, the contenders are vehicle models that are most likely to have a significant presence at the 2011 SEMA Show. Contenders were determined based on several key factors, including support from the automakers, interest from the media and enthusiasts and SEMA-member program participation.

Owners of any of the contender vehicles are invited to submit a 60–90-second video showcasing the vehicle and explaining why their registered, street-legal vehicle deserves to be on display at the SEMA Show. Winning videos will include a walk around pointing out and describing the type, brand and benefits of products installed.

Winners will receive a featured vehicle spot at the 2011 SEMA Show, along with two credentials to attend the event, two-nights hotel accommodations and allowance for food and gas. Winners will be selected by October 1, 2011. Complete details are available here.
