• 2012 ILDA Awards

Glorious Light by LOBO

Presented November 6 at the 2012 ILDA Conference held at the St. Anthony Riverwalk Wyndham Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, hosted by Laser Spectacles.

The ILDA Awards are the laser display industry's equivalent of Hollywood's Oscars. Each year, they honor companies and individuals from around the world for their achievements. These awards were bestowed at the 2012 ILDA Conference:

     • The Artistic Awards cover virtually all aspects of modern laser displays, from the creation of individual laser graphics to the production of huge outdoor shows.

     • The Technical Awards, named for pioneering laserist Fred Fenning, honor technological achievements that advance the industry.

     • Outstanding Service Recognition for companies and individuals who have provided exceptional service to ILDA.

     • The Career Achievement Award is ILDA's highest honor, given for work spanning many years in the area of show quality, innovation, and industry service.

2012 entries and judging

For 2012, ILDA received 146 artistic entries from 22 different Member companies. These artistic entries were judged July 27-28 2012 in San Antonio, with Greg Sutherland organizing the judging and Tim Walsh of Laser Spectacles hosting.

New Laser Jockey category

The Laser Jockey competition was new for 2012. This was held during the Nov. 5 Lase-Off at the ILDA Conference. There were six entrants; each person performed to live music of their choice for two minutes, then for another two minutes to music picked by ILDA. Persons attending the Lase-Off rated each performance from 1 to 10. The ratings were added up, and the top three performers received First, Second and Third Place.
