The Knight of Illumination Awards, organized by STLD
and Clay Paky
, will provide public recognition for outstanding achievements in Lighting Design by Lighting Designers working on productions in the UK, in a number of professional areas. At the same time, these Awards will forge closer ties between the world of Lighting Design and the Lighting Industry as a whole.
The STLD and the ALD, who have always been attentive to the needs of the lighting market and its Designers, have always regarded the professional personality of the Lighting Designer as a “Knight of Illumination”, a slightly romantic and generous character, always ready to offer and defend values of integrity and professionalism in the world in which he, or she, operates. And the “Knights of 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 nominated and judged by a panel of professional reviewers working in the specific categories, selected and coordinated entirely by STLD and ALD. These two British associations of Lighting Designers will ensure that these Awards go to recipients showing professionalism and integrity of Lighting Design each year.
