Presented November 19 at the 2014 ILDA Conference held in Las Vegas, hosted by Laser Production Network (LaserNet)

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 2014 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.

     • 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.

For 2014, ILDA received 204 artistic and technical entries from a record 38 different Member companies. Most of the artistic entries were judged June 27-28 2014 in Las Vegas by a three-member panel that met for two days of review and voting. Photography entries were judged by ILDA Members voting online, June 24-July 8 2014. Laser Jockey entries were viewed and judged by attendees at the Lase-Off during the ILDA Conference on November 18 2014. Fenning technical entries were judged via online discussion of a three-member panel in June 2014.
