Clay Paky sponsors 'The Knight Of The Illumination' awards

At the ABTT “Annual Awards Dinner 2007” in London, Clay Paky officially announced the awards for “The Knight of the Illumination”. The event, promoted and sponsored by Clay Paky, in association with STLD and ALD, will provide public recognition for outstanding achievements in Lighting Design by UK based Lighting Designers, in a number of professional areas.
Clay Paky, who has always been attentive to the needs of the lighting market and its designers, has always regarded the professional figure of the Lighting Designer as a “Knight of the Illumination”, a slightly romantic and generous figure, always ready to offer and defend values of integrity and professionalism in the world in which he, or she, operates. The “Knights of the Illumination” offer their values with their lighting 'sword' in hand, a simple metaphor of the “automated light” tool put at their disposal by the Lighting Industry.
The awards for “The Knight of the Illumination”, will be judged jointly by STLD and ALD. Both British associations of Lighting Designers will ensure that these Awards go to recipients showing professionalism and integrity of Lighting Design each year. The judges for each of the categories of the awards, and the criteria of nomination will be selected and coordinated entirely by STLD and ALD.
Clay Paky, who conceived and promoted the event, will be presenting the winners with their prizes, in the following professional areas and categories:
ROCK CONCERTS (touring):
Arena events Stage events
Musicals Drama Dance Opera
Light entertainment show Drama Special events Music programmes
a very special category which may or may not belong directly to the world of Lighting Design as such
The first edition of the Awards for “The Knight of the Illumination”will take place as a “special section” at the ABTT Annual Awards Dinner, 2008.
Further information on the event, on the criteria of evaluation and on the rules for participation, will soon be available.
