Taking place for the eighth time, the Baden Baden Awards 2016 will be honouring outstanding final papers by recently graduated stage set artists and stage set sculptors, make-up artists, sound and image media designers, event representatives, event technicians and property masters.
Juliane Trempler, project manager of Stage|Set|Scenery, comments, "We are sponsoring the awards for the fourth time and look forward to supporting the next generation.

The Anatomical Theatre developed by DTHG based on designs by Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden, and supported by CAST, ETC and Lichtblick, will provide Stage|Set|Scenery with a location for holding numerous training courses for students of all ages, newcomers and professionals.
As part of its career guidance service, Stage|Set|Scenery will be organising a national and international job market and advert
