The organizers of the inaugural Knight of Illumination Awards USA (KOI-USA), to be held in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 20, 2018, recently revealed the final shortlists of nominees. With nominations allocated to three categories—Theatre, Live for Broadcast, and Concert Touring & Events—the shortlist includes some of the world’s best-known names in lighting and video design.
The shortlist for each category was whittled down from the full list of nominations by three independent judging panels. Each judge is appointed for their expertise in their field. Click through the gallery to check out the designs and see what the judges had to say about each.
The award winners will be announced at a ceremony and gala dinner on October 20 at The Foundry, SLS Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, to coincide with the LDI tradeshow. The inaugural KOI-USA ceremony and gala dinner is organized by The Fifth Estate, producers of the UK Awards, and Informa, the company behind the LDI tradeshow and Live Design magazine.
