In support of fostering the creative processes of young entertainment designers, global design software developer Vectorworks, Inc. is sponsoring awards at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF). Started in 1969, KCACTF is a national program designed to celebrate college theater in the United States, and help students develop their creative and technical skills. Each year, KCACTF hosts eight regional festivals for college theater students across the United States. Festival activities include workshops, discussions, regional-level scholarships and award programs, giving students the opportunity to showcase their best productions and receive feedback from professionals. “The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the diverse, emerging talent from around the country,” said Frank Brault, product marketing manager at Vectorworks. “We wholeheartedly enjoy seeing the innovation and perspective young designers bring to the table.” For each of the eight regional festivals, Vectorworks will donate a professional Vectorworks® Spotlight license to a winner of the Design, Technology and Management category. Entries are evaluated on quality, effectiveness, originality and visual presentation techniques. “KCACTF honors excellence and offers student artists individual recognition through awards and scholarships. At its core, it provides opportunities for participants to develop cutting-edge skills and learn current best practices,” said National KCACTF DTM Chair Rafael Jaen. “To do this effectively, we rely on industry-leading sponsors, such as Vectorworks. The company's sponsorship will help the Design, Technology and Management (DTM) students expand their design approaches and achieve higher levels of professionalism.” This year, the eight regional festivals will run between January 3 and March 4.
