‘Set of the Year’ winners announced

NewscastStudio is pleased to announce the results of our “Set Madness” competition to determine the 2011 set of the year.

This year’s competition was tough — with so many great sets nominated that we decided to switch from the typical single-round voting structure to multiple rounds.

And the winner?

Turkey’s NTV, a massive set designed by Clickspring Design. The high-tech and sleek set includes numerous creative uses of projection and flat screens as well as modern backlit and metal elements. A main anchor area boasts a broad glass-fronted anchor desk positioned in front of a wide screen that is used for both branding and topical purposes. The huge ceilings in the space are maximized with tall glass and backlit elements and a double-stacked array of large flat panels that create the impression of a bay of windows.

We’re also pleased to award the honor of best local set to Devlin Design Group’s WSYR-TV.

WSYR-TV was a consistent strong performer in our competition, garnering the most votes of any other local set in the running.

The WSYR-TV set is a study in bold blues and modern accents and also gives the station a wealth of flexibility with the ability to expose the newsroom as an alternate background and two standup positions and mobile set pieces. Backlit elements are also a key feature of the set.

Congratulations to all the winners. We’re looking forward to seeing what 2012 brings in the world of set design!
