Nominations for our 2023 Young Designers, Managers, and Technicians Awards are now being accepted through Nov. 3, 2023.

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, managers, 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 National Office.
