To fellow judges Pablo Pardo (amazing lighting designer) and Andy Hall (School of the Art Institute, HallMFG), thanks for your kindness and enthusiasm for the judging process - it was fun! Wonderful to meet both of you, as well.
To all 60 entrants, 17 finalists and 6 winners - Thank you for your ingenuity and inspiring designs. It was a treat to see your work, which will remain on display for 2 weeks at Tree Studios for anyone who couldn't make it last night. (Another post to follow later all about the lighting competition)
Be sure to join our official meetup group to stay in the loop for upcoming gatherings.
