Think revolutionary. Think extraordinary. It's time to sound off on what rocks in this industry!

New York, NY - The nomination period for the 6th Annual ROCK OUR WORLD awards, presented by PLASA, is open from 20 May 2013 through 21 June 2013. An opportunity for industry members to celebrate what makes them proud to be a part of this industry – the ROCK OUR WORLD awards recognize the genius of creators, designers and integrators. These awards focus on what makes new products, product applications or projects revolutionary, not just evolutionary.

As in previous years, anyone may nominate a project, product or product application with a PLASA member involved in a significant role as designer, manufacturer, supplier or collaborator. Nominations for the 2013 awards must have been available in the market or premiered between 1 October 2011 and 21 June 2013 and must not have been previously nominated.

A panel of well-respected industry experts will serve as this year's judges and finalists will be notified in August. Winners will be announced at PLASA's annual cocktail and awards ceremony at the LDI show in Las Vegas, NV.

Previous winners have included Green-GO Communication System (ELC Lighting), ALEXA Digital Camera System (ARRI), Garsington Opera (Unusual Rigging), Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House Chandelier (Carallon, J.R. Clancy, ETC, Mike Wood Consulting), and 83rd Annual Academy Awards (A.C.T Lighting, Green Hippo, MA Lighting, PRG, TMB).
