ALD Awards for Excellence 2020 have been rescheduled to start imminently

UK – Always backing ambition, the ALD has announced that its ALD Awards for Excellence, aimed at all UK-based students and recent graduates, will launch imminently, to offer an exciting, additional focus for students. The ALD Awards for Excellence reflect the association’s growing representation of lighting and video design as well as production electrics and include The Michael Northen Award for lighting design, The Fred Foster Award for Production Electrics (sponsored by ETC) and the Blue-I Media Award for Video design.

Johanna Town, chair of the ALD, said: “The ALD Awards for Excellence provides an important platform for students on which they can hone their abilities to communicate their chosen medium. To be able to sell ideas and passions for a design or methodology to other industry leaders is an important skill. For this reason, The ALD’s Awards for Excellence are so important to a designer’s future.”

Rory Beaton, head of the ALD’s working group for awards, added: “We’d like to encourage UK students and recent graduates to use this time to collate photos and notes for your entry. Also, to check our social media pages and the Awards section of the ALD website where those with a real interest in entering and winning the awards can find extra information and tips."

The Awards offer a chance for young designers to showcase their talent, bringing their work to the attention of experienced production professionals and the industry as a whole. As a celebration of imaginative and creative lighting and video production, awards are presented to those who demonstrate strong lighting or video designs or skills in production electrics.

Further announcements will be made across all the ALD's media platforms:
