We are proud to sponsor the iSquint.net and Stage Directions Student Lighting Design Competition (SLDC) for the third year in a row. City Theatrical and Field Template are also sponsoring the competition, and the winner will receive a prize package that includes a professional license of Vectorworks Spotlight 2013 with Renderworks software, a personal license of Lightwright 5, a single license of Field Template SoftSymbols V3.5, a copy of Light Plot Deconstructed by Gregg Hillmar, and a copy of the forthcoming Entertainment Design: Scenery, Lighting, and Sound with Vectorworks Spotlight by Kevin Lee Allen. The winner will also be featured on iSquint.net and here on Planet Vectorworks.
“We are excited to launch the 2013 SLDC with all of our partners,” said Justin Lang, Editor of iSquint.net. “The SLDC is a great opportunity for all students to understand the design process and tools that professionals use.”
Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts including: Justin Lang from iSquint, Kevin Linzey from Nemetschek Vectorworks, Steve Shelley from Field Template, Gregg Hillmar from Hillmar Designs, John McKernon from Lightwright, and Kevin Lee Allen from KLAD.
“This is an incredible opportunity for young designers,” said Jacob Coakley, editor of Stage Directions. “The opportunity to get your work in front of such a great group of judges, who also happen to work in the industry—not to mention the phenomenal prize package—is not to be missed. We look forward to seeing all the great work submitted this year.”
Design entries must be created by a student using Lightwright and Vectorworks with Renderworks. Full-time students with active and valid college or university IDs can download a free student version of Vectorworks 2013 with Renderworks. Lightwright also offers a demo version that can be used for producing paperwork for the competition.
