The TIP is an international prize awarded to the technicians working in theatre or any part of the entertainment industry who make gadgets, devices or basically simple and smart solutions for theatre work: those clever ideas that are mostly realized by inexpensive means and materials.
The apparatus might only be used in one particular theatre, company, travelling show, sometimes just one country. This is an opportunity to share these inventions and clever devices with the international community through publication of the TIP Catalogue, featuring the entries deemed most useful by an international panel of judges.
The top three entries will be recognized at the TIP award ceremony at World Stage Design 2022. The winner of the 2022 Technical Invention 1st Prize will receive a $1,000 USD cash prize, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive $500 USD and $250 USD respectively. Selected entries will be displayed in the TIP Exhibition at World Stage Design 2022.
