Congratulations to two of our Roadies Of Color United members Martin Thomas and Kristen “KD” Dean on their Parrnelli Award nominations. Receiving a Parnelli Award is the most prestigious honor in our industry – the nominating and awarding processes have been organized in such a way that it is virtually impossible to “stuff the ballot box.” Truly, it is a jury of our peers that decides who receives this honor, making it all the more meaningful.
Voting for the Parnelli Awards is now open. Only current subscribers to Projection, Lights & Staging News, and FRONT of HOUSE magazines get to vote. Voting will close on December 15 at 12:00 pm (PST).
Let’s show your support with your votes for our ROCU members
Martin Thomas / Erykah Badu has been nominated for Production Designer of the Year and Kristen Dean / Beyoncé. has been nominated for Audio System Tech of the Year.
How Winners Are Chosen Is A Two-Part Process
Every year, people can come to this Web site and nominate potential Parnelli Award winners. The nominations are tallied and reviewed for authenticity and accuracy by the Parnelli Board of Advisors.
Up to six nominees for each category are then confirmed and announced on this site, through an email blast, and in Projection, Lights & Staging News, and Front of House magazines. Then individual subscribers (not just readers) are allowed to vote on our Website’s secure voting page. One vote per subscriber is assured – each voter must use the subscriber number printed on their copy of the magazine’s mailing address label. There are over 40,000 combined subscribers to both magazines. If you are not a current subscriber to PLSN or FOH magazine it is easy to subscribe and both magazines are free.
