Huge congratulations to Kate Burnett, Trish Grasham, Brad Lee and the team from Backstage Academy for winning one of the PQ2015 Special Jury Awards. The panel were very impressed by the diversity of work selected to show in this digital format (see their statement below), so our thanks should also go to our own selection panel at Make/Believe in Nottingham, our management committee and to all the student volunteers from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Nottingham Trent University who supported the exhibition there and will be involved again when the 3rd incarnation of the exhibit opens at the V&A on 10th July. Thanks also to the V&A and The Linbury Trust for their continued support.

Special award for the United Kingdom: Make/Believe – UK Design for Performance 2011 – 15

The jury’s statement:
This award recognises the richness and diversity of an exhibition that shows high quality work from across the spectrum of contemporary performance design – in a variety of venues, and embracing space, light, media and costume. The complexity of the selection shows scenographers working in many different ways and, importantly, a confidence in the way scenography can shape productions and engage audiences in multiple ways.

An expanded selection of designers will be exhibited at the V&A from 10th July 2015 – January 2016.
