The Knight of Illumination Awards (KOI) is the ultimate showcase of entertainment lighting and video design work in the UK. Judging is conducted by three panels of industry experts in conjunction with prestigious industry organisations the ALD and the STLD.
The Knight of Illumination Awards were conceived by lighting designer Durham and Jennie Marenghi in partnership with the Italian lighting manufacturer Claypaky – which to this day continues to support the awards as headline sponsors. The awards and annual ceremony are managed by The Fifth Estate on behalf of the KOI committee.
Since its conception in 2007 KOI has continued to grow in stature and is now the most credible and sought after UK industry awards to celebrate lighting, projection and digital content design for entertainment. KOI recognises work broadcast or performed in the UK across the fields of Television, Theatre and Concert and Events.
