The second annual Knight of Illumination Awards USA (KOI-USA) ceremony took place at The Joint in The Hard Rock Hotel on Friday, November 22. Almost 400 industry professionals gathered to celebrate the creative talents of lighting and video designers' work produced in the United States over the last year. Twenty-six designers were "knighted" for their work on productions in the Theatre, Live for Broadcast and Concert Touring & Events categories. These awards were followed by the presentation of the Paky Lifetime Recognition Award created by KOI-USA co-headline sponsor and leading lighting manufacturer, Claypaky.
