Congrats to Karyn Lawrence, Winner of the 2012 Student Lighting Design Competition!


Congratulations to Karyn Lawrence, winner of the 2nd Annual and Stage Directions Magazine Student Lighting Design Competition! Lawrence is a student at University of California, Irvine completing an MFA in Lighting Design. Her entry of “Abraham and Isaac in Jerusalem” was a realized design, performed at the UC, Irvine Claire Trevor Theater in September of 2010 under the direction of Dr. Robert Cohen. She will receive a prize package including a professional license of Vectorworks 2012 with Renderworks software, a personal license of Lightwright™ 5 and a single license of Field Template™ SoftSymbols V3. She will also receive copies of Light Plot Deconstructed by Gregg Hillmar and Entertainment and Lighting Design with Vectorworks Spotlight by Kevin Lee Allen.

“I am so grateful for this opportunity!” said Lawrence. “I cannot express to you how essential Vectorworks and Lightwright are to my design process, any lighting designer’s process for that matter. I can honestly say that I am not sure how I would go about designing without both of these invaluable programs.”
