“It has been an amazing journey since starting the LET award in 2012 meeting all these remarkable and exciting new artists and seeing where their creative journeys have taken them since. It has been a thrill and a privilege to see the work of and even to collaborate with many previous winners and nominees as peers on various projects.

There are so many really exciting young companies working today whom I first encountered through the awards showcase and I hope that the award continues to give new artists making original work the boost they need to get something made and get something seen.

I look forward to enjoying much more of this work in the years ahead”
