AVIXA AV Experience Awards return for 2021

AVIXA, the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, has confirmed that the AV Experience Awards will return this year.

The awards recognise the innovative integration of content, space, and AV technology to enrich experiences. Entry for the awards is now open.

“Last year, AVIXA created the AV Experience Awards to recognise result-driven projects, answering the question: how did AV make a desired experience possible?” said Joé Lloyd, senior director of communications, AVIXA. “In its first year, we saw projects where AV was being applied in imaginative ways around the world – from New York to Copenhagen, to London to Nanjing. We’re looking forward to again witnessing the work of the talented AV community.” 

The awards’ different categories are described as follows:

The Best Dynamic Art Experience award celebrates AV as art – whether it is to amaze, create a cultural centerpiece, energise people for their day, reinvigorate a functional space, or display information in a stimulating way.

The Best In-Person Experience award recognises when AV is used strategically to motivate potential attendees to get out into the real world to experience something they can’t see, do, or feel anywhere else.

The Best Individualised Experience award highlights applications where technology gets personal and allows an experience or interaction to be tailored to the individual.

The Best Immersive Experience award recognises illusionary or simulated environments that envelop individuals into an encompassing multi-sensory experience utilising content, space, and technology.

The Best Flexible Space Experience award highlights AV applications that create spaces that are constantly changing, adaptable, and facilitate the activities that happen within them.

The Best Collaborative Experience award celebrates applications of AV that help enhance interactivity.
