Live Design has announced the first annual Excellence in Live Design Awards. Nominations are now being accepted for outstanding individual achievement in design for projects occurring from September 2006 to August 2007.
Each nomination will be featured in a full-page article — complete with photos and a credits box — in Live Design's December Sourcebook. Readers will vote for the nominations online to determine the winning entries. One winning project will be chosen in each of the seven categories: Architainment, Concerts, Corporate Events, Live for Broadcast, Theatre Production, Venues (club or lounge), and Venues (theatre or performance). Winners will be featured in the special March USITT preview issue and honored at the Broadway Master Classes in May, and will receive yearlong exposure on www.livedesignonline.com.
Anyone involved in a project — architects, consultants, owners, producers, manufacturers, suppliers, designers, venue or event staff — may submit an entry. An entry fee for each nomination applies.
