ALSD Spotlight Description, Rules, and Terms

ALSD Spotlight Presented by AVIXA – Awards Showcase for the Venue Marketplace

Presented by AVIXA, ALSD Spotlight is back and even better!  We had great success rewarding and showing off your venue accomplishments last year at our Conference & Tradeshow awards ceremony, as well as in print with our Spotlight Edition, and online.  We have changed up our categories this time around to keep things fresh and feature new aspects of the marketplace, especially hi-tech areas like video boards and esports design.

This industry award based on a design and photo contest is a great way to show off what you’ve done and see what others are creating.  And remember, every relevant entrant is featured on our website and social media, whether you win or not!

If you entered a project for Spotlight 2017 and did not win a category feel free to reenter the same project. And even if your project did win an award last year, you may also enter any category aside from what you won the previous year.

We will be publishing the annual ALSD Spotlight edition in the summer of 2018. This special print edition will be filled with photography of best-in-breed spaces and design accomplishments in the venue marketplace. The top highlights, as determined by a panel of select judges, will be given the most premium treatment in the publication and will be announced at the 2018 ALSD Conference and Tradeshow.

Core Categories:
We have selected twelve great categories for our judges to consider. No preferential treatment will be given to new, renovated, or existing venue spaces. All are welcome!  Renderings are allowed to be included, but your entry may not contain renderings only.
