Many thanks to everyone who took the trouble to enter programmes, and do please start collecting nominations for the 6th Knight of Illumination Awards to be held on 6th October 2013.

Nominations are invited from anyone within the lighting industry and not just from the LD of the show.  Shows must be aired between 1st June 2012 and 30th June 2013, be lit by a UK based lighting designer and submitted in the form of a DVD, preferably without BITC (Burnt-in timecode), that includes the clip to be judged - which should be from three to ten minutes long.  Please include a brief testament to the qualities demonstrated.

You do not have to have worked on a production to nominate it, and members are allowed to present their own work if they wish - but please remember, nominations without DVDs can’t be judged!

Entries should be sent to Bernie Davis at the following address:

11 Bloomfield Crescent
