The Theatres TrustThe Theatres Trust announced today at the ABTT Theatre Show 2012 that entries can now be submitted for the Trust's third annual People's Choice Award. This Award is for a product that makes a real difference to theatre sustainability through its design, manufacture or operation and entertainment industry manufacturers and suppliers are invited to enter one of their products.

Selection takes place at PLASA 2012 running from 9-12 September at Earls Court, London, where shortlisted products will be displayed on The Theatres Trust's stand and visitors to the show can cast their vote for the People's Choice Award. This means that the winner is chosen by the people in the industry who actually use the equipment.

After three days of visitor voting, the award will be presented to the winner at a reception on The Theatres Trust's on Tuesday 11 September. The presentation will mark the culmination of PLASA's sustainability series of related Education Programme events that day.

Professional Lighting and Sound Association (PLASA) Chief Executive Officer & Director of Events, Matthew Griffiths, described the Award as providing a chance for people in the industry to support the commitment shown by manufacturers to issues of sustainability in theatre and live entertainment. "Because it is voted for by the theatre community," he declared, "it carries real value to the companies dedicated to making a sustainable difference."

Manufacturers or suppliers who wish to enter can pick up an entry form from The Theatres Trust stand at the ABTT Theatre Show 2012, or visit www.theatrestrust.org.uk.
