• 2016 ILDA Awards

Future City by LOBO

Presented November 8 at the 2016 ILDA Conference held in Baltimore, Maryland, hosted by Image Engineering

The ILDA Awards are the laser display industry's equivalent of Hollywood's Oscars. Each year, they honor companies and individuals from around the world for their achievements. These awards were bestowed at the 2016 ILDA Conference:

     • The Artistic Awards cover virtually all aspects of modern laser displays, from the creation of individual laser graphics to the production of huge outdoor shows.

     • The Technical Awards, named for pioneering laserist Fred Fenning, honor technological achievements that advance the industry.

     • The Career Achievement Award is ILDA's highest honor, given for work spanning many years in the area of show quality, innovation, and industry service.

In addition, ILDA announced Tobias Zeides as winner of the first New Talent search contest. This is not an ILDA Award, but does provide a trophy to the person creating the best laser show entered in the contest, which is open to non-ILDA members.
