Prolight + Sound once again honors outstandingly planned and installed audiovisual systems with the "Sinus - System Integration Award 2024". The focus is on
the outstanding combination of artistic vision and technical implementation. The award ceremony will take place during Prolight + Sound 2024 (from March 19 to 22) in Frankfurt am Main. Participants and the public can submit projects until November 03 2023.

The honorary award is sponsored by the Association of Media and Event Technology (VPLT e.V.), the European Association of Event Centers (EVVC e.V.) and Messe Frankfurt. An independent jury of experts, consisting of association members, industry experts, media representatives and representatives of Messe Frankfurt, evaluates the submitted projects and selects the winners.

Last year, the Sinus Award was presented to the Dark Matter AV Installation in Berlin. Covering an area of 1000 m², "Dark Matter" fuses movement and sound into emotional choreographies of luminous shapes and colors in multimedia installations - from intimate.


Christopher Bauder is creative director of the design studio WHITEvoid, which won the Sinus Award 2023 with the permanent installation Dark Matter.

And who won in the years before?

The 2022 Sinus winner was the Parisian art collective Culturespaces. With the "Bassins de Lumières" in Bordeaux, France, it has created the largest digital art center in the world.

Osram, a manufacturer of illuminants, completely convinced the jury in Munich with its "World of Light" exhibition and won in 2020.

In addition to the Sinus, the "Opus - German Stage Prize" will also be awarded again in 2024. The Opus has been awarded to exceptional personalities and projects since 2002. The focus is on the technical realization of theater and musical productions, concerts, tours and corporate events.

In 2023, the Pandaemonium at the Staatstheater Kassel received the coveted prize. It impressed with an innovative spatial concept that integrates the audience into the action. The team led by Florian Lutz, artistic director of Staatstheater Kassel, also successfully explored new forms of use and play in the theater. The Pandaemonium is thus emblematic of the forward-looking approach to the challenges of the Corona crisis.

A jury of industry experts from business, associations, trade publications and representatives of Messe Frankfurt honors new, outstanding approaches to the creative use of technology. The sponsors of the non-endowed honorary award are the Association for Media and Event Technology (VPLT), the European Association of Event Centers (EVVC) and Messe Frankfurt GmbH.

The Opus awards the creative and innovative use of event technology in projects such as:

  • Theater and stage productions
  • Concerts and tours
  • Conferences and corporate events
  • City festivals and open-air events

Here you can submit your projects to the Opus expert jury and apply for the established award. The deadline for applications is November 03, 2023.

Winners of the Opus Award 2022

The first winner of the Opus 2022 was the "Dionysos Stadt Open Air", which in the summer of 2021, with a lot of courage and an impressive backdrop, made art and cultural experiences possible for a larger audience while adhering to all restrictions.

New technical territory was entered by the creators of the project "Woodkid @ ZDF Magazin Royal", who made a virtue out of necessity and created a completely new augmented reality experience. This extraordinary TV event was awarded the newly created "Opus AVantgard" by the jury. This award honors work away from the classic stage performance that depicts current technological or staging trends in a forward-looking way.
