Awards and Funding

Recognition and support of creative work and research is one of the central goals of USITT.  From recognizing lifetime achievement to honoring the best entering our industry, USITT's awards are meant to bring honor to those who rarely receive it.

Funding of research is also an important part of USITT.  With support for the Edward F. Kook Fund for Research, USITT has been able to support groundbreaking research in LED lighting fixtures, digital fabric archives, and high speed motor braking for entertainment through the Grants & Fellowships Program.
