The contest provided free conference admission, including hotel expenses, to three winners based on their responses to an essay question.

Last weekend at the USITT 2010 Annual Conference & Stage Expo, lighting designer Ben Pilat was presented with the 2010 Rising Star Award. This annual award, sponsored by LDI 2010 and Live Design, "recognizes excellence and artistic achievement in the areas of scenic, lighting, sound, and projection design, or the convergence of these design disciplines."
If you were at the United States Institute for Theatre Technology conference (USITT) last week in Kansas City, hopefully you got the chance to attend the session on "Vectorworks and AutoCAD getting along" with Nemetschek North America's Director of Training Frank Brault as a panelist. There were over 200 attendees who had the opportunity to see first-hand how the two programs work together, specifically through the seamless data exchange of PDF, DXF/DWG files, etc.
