Instagram Rigging Contest Promises Epic Prize Packs

February 10, 2020

USITT is excited to announce the start of a joint contest between USITT and Loos & Co., Inc. Cableware, a member of the Institute and a USITT 2020 exhibitor specializing in rigging equipment!

This Instagram-only contest is meant for theatrical departments at the university level and will have three separate winners for a first-, second-, and third-place price. First place will receive a $5,000 credit toward Loos & Co. Inc. Cableware tools and hardware, second place will get a $2,500 credit, and third place takes home a $1,000 credit. All prizes will be awarded to the university that the individual who submitted it is enrolled in.

To enter, post a video up to two minutes showcasing rigging in action and creatively solving a problem with the rigging (If your video goes over one minute, upload to IGTV). Once your rigging video is created, simply upload to your Instagram account and use the hashtags #rigginginaction, #locoloc, and #USITT20, and tag @USITT and @looscableware to qualify your entry. Those who enter must also be following @USITT and @looscableware.

The contest lasts until April 1 and winners will be chosen by a jury who will pick the most creative video, so use your creativity! The jury is made up of industry experts who will be voting to determine the top three videos.
