The SGM New Talents Award is back

awards news 

We are excited to report that the SGM New Talents Award will be back again this year and that we remain one if its sponsors! The award is the ideal platform for young lighting designers and creative people in and near Germany who are taking their first steps in event lighting design to present their work. An expert jury consisting of Jerry Appelt, Tom Becker and the competition's sponsors will evaluate the entries and the top three designers will be invited to the live finals in Cologne.

The finalists can look forward to attractive prizes worth a total of more than 6500€ - including a Capture 2019 Quartet Edition licence for the winner and a Capture 2019 Solo Edition licence for the runner-up.

Michael Herweg, one of the two managing directors of SGM Germany and a member of the jury himself, is looking forward to the second edition: "It's amazing how creative young people are in the lighting sector. We were pleasantly surprised by the many great contributions that had already been submitted at the premiere. We are already looking forward to the contributions this year".
