The 3rd Knight Of Illumination Awards

After the highly successful and much participated second edition closed with the award-giving ceremony in London on 13th September 2009, we are glad to announce that the third edition of the KNIGHT OF ILLUMINATION AWARDS is now underway.

This new edition of the Awards has been implemented with improved criteria and rules:

It is open to UK-based LDs (for the theatre section it is open to theatre productions performed in the UK though not necessarily designed by UK based LDs) with a show performing in the UK between September 2009 and May 2010.

The applications can be made not only directly by
UK-based LDs,
but also by
UK Rental Companies
LDs sponsors
entering any UK-based LD’s work that they feel merits nomination for this year’s awards.

Exclusively for TELEVISION categories:
anyone can submit a show
they do not have to have worked on it.

The Awards for “The Knight of Illumination” will be nominated and judged by a panel of professional reviewers working in the specific categories, selected and coordinated by the STLD and the ALD.

Stage events | Arena events | Eco friendly tour

Light Entertainment | Drama | Small Studio | Events

Musicals | Dance | Opera | Drama

The newly designed Knight of Illumination portal web page allows designers and/or their sponsors to place their entries on a secure web page which can be updated by the nominees and reviewed by the judges but not accessed by other nominees. The committee will then forward to the applicants log in details for a secure Content Manager web site where LDs must place as much of the requested information as possible (high size limit) for consideration by the judges.

Registrations to the contest will be closed on the 31st of May 2010.

Date of awards: Sunday 12th September, 2010, this being the first day of PLASA 2010.

Further information regarding the event, entry form and assessment criteria are available on the site:
