The KOI judging process has always been a key part of the awards’ integrity and this tradition will be extended to KOI-USA. Organisers have already recruited three strong advisors: Concert Touring & Events judges’ advisor is John Featherstone, Principal of Lightswitch; Live Broadcast judges’ advisor is Jeff Ravitz of Intensity Advisors and the Theatre judges’ advisor is Clifton Taylor, Principal of Design Curve.
Sarah Rushton-Read, Creative Director of The Fifth Estate, says, “KOI’s raison d’être has always been to shine a light on the work of great designers and opening up the awards to productions staged in the USA is a great way to further the cause. The LDI / Live Design team share our passion and we are enjoying working with them on what is shaping up to be a great first KOI-USA.”
