2012 Parnelli Award Nominations Now Open

Parnelli Awards 2012LAS VEGAS — If you ever wondered who picks out the names that appear on the Parnelli Awards ballot every year, just take a look in the mirror. Yes, YOU! All PLSN readers once again have the opportunity — but only through the end of August — to choose most of the individuals and companies to be honored Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas. Nominations are now being accepted for all  2012 Parnelli Awards categories at www.parnelliawards.com/nominate.

This year’s Parnelli highlights will include the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to Charlie Hernandez, the Parnelli Visionary Award to Joe Branam and the Audio Innovator award to Dave Shadoan. All of the other Parnelli Awards honoring excellence on the part of companies, individuals and products are up for grabs — and it all depends on YOU.

So be sure to go to www.parnelliawards.com/nominate and make sure YOUR voice is heard. There, you can nominate your choice for Lighting Designer, Set/Scenic Designer, Video Director, Tour Manager and Production Manager of the Year. There are also awards honoring companies involved in Lighting, Staging, Set Construction, Video, Rigging, Pyro, Trucking and Freight Forwarding.

Separately, PLSN readers also have been voting for the finalists in the annual competition for Hometown Hero Lighting Company of the Year at www.plsn.com/hometown. Those winners, in five U.S. regions and all of Canada, will also appear on the Parnelli awards ballot next month. And the nominations process for 2012’s Indispensable Technology (“IT”) Awards is also coming to a close. To recognize products that have advanced the state-of-the-art in lighting, staging, projection and sound, go to www.plsn.com/it.

It all promises to add up to the biggest night of the year for the live entertainment profession — and none of it would be possible without the generous support of the 2012 Parnelli Awards sponsors.
