Awards Ceremony at the International Trade Fair
The awards ceremony on Thursday has been a firm fixture at Prolight + Sound and Musikmesse. The Sinus – Systems Integration Award, der Opus – Deutscher Bühnenpreis, der Prolight + Sound International Press Award (PIPA) and the Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) are traditionally presented in a shared event.
The Sinus Award
The Sinus Award has been given since 2004 in various categories. It is considered one of the more prestigious awards in the AV media technology industry. The award honors the most innovative projects in the field of audiovisual communication in the areas of information, entertainment, business or venue. The award can also honor lifetime achievement. The Sinus Award 2017 was awarded to the media installation at the Hilti AG headquarters in Liechtenstein.
The Opus Award
The Opus Award has been granted since 2002, honoring excellent work in the area of light design, technical realization, stage and production design as well as stage production and is considered one of the most esteemed awards in the event industry. The Opus 2017 was awarded to two different exciting projects. The honorees are, on the one hand, Christian “Rocket Chris” Glatthor, who was convincing in the category of stage and lighting design with the “Get Loud Open Air Tour 2016” by Rea Garvey. But the staging of Schiller’s “The Robbers” attracted the jury’s attention.
