Young Designers, Managers, & Technicians Awards

New for 2018! This year, the YDMT awards have changed slightly.  In previous years, a student had to be nominated by a faculty member to apply for the YDMT awards.  This year, any student may enter the YDMT awards, though they do need to secure a letter of recommendation from a faculty member and a letter of support from a member of the entertainment industry.  

The Awards for Young Designers, Managers, & Technicians in the Performing Arts, known throughout USITT as the YDMT Awards, bring recognition and support to young designers and technicians at the beginning of their careers. They are made possible by generous gifts to USITT from their sponsors. If you are interested in establishing a permanent award, please contact the USITT Office.
