2012 Parnelli Award Nominations Now Open!

LAS VEGAS — If you ever wondered who picks out the names that appear on the Parnelli Awards ballot every year, just take a look in the mirror. Yes, you! All FRONT of HOUSE readers once again have the opportunity — but only through the end of August — to choose most of the individuals and companies to be honored Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas. Nominations are now being accepted for all 2012 Parnelli Awards categories at parnelliawards.com/nominate.

This year’s Parnelli highlights will include the presentation of the Audio Innovator award to Dave Shadoan, the Lifetime Achievement Award to Charlie Hernandez and the Parnelli Visionary Award to Joe Branam. All of the other Parnelli Awards honoring excellence on the part of companies, individuals and products are up for grabs — and it all depends on you.

So be sure to go to parnelliawards.com/ nominate and make sure your voice is heard. There, you can nominate your choice for best FOH mixer, Monitor Mixer, Sound Company, System Tech and more. There are also awards honoring companies involved in Lighting, Staging, Set Construction, Video, Rigging, Pyro, Trucking and Freight Forwarding.

Separately, FRONT of HOUSE readers also have been voting for the finalists in the annual competition for Hometown Hero Sound Company of the Year. Those winners, in five U.S. regions and all of Canada, will also appear on the Parnelli awards ballot next month.

Finally the nominations process for 2012’s Indispensable Technology (“IT”) Awards is also coming to a close. To recognize products that have advanced the state-of-the-art in sound, go to www.plsn.com/it.

It all promises to add up to the biggest night of the year for the live entertainment profession — and none of it would be possible without the generous support of the 2012 Parnelli Awards sponsors.
