The Michael Maggio Emerging Designer Award is awarded to Chicago Area emerging scenic, costume, lighting, sound, composition, projection or other designers in acknowledgment of excellence in artistry and collaboration. The award is named in honour of Associate Artistic Director of the Goodman Theatre and Dean of The Theatre School at DePaul University Michael Maggio. The award and an honorarium, inaugurated in 2000, following Michael Maggio's death, are presented annually.[1]

The Michael Maggio award is one of the Michael Merritt Design Awards, inaugurated in 1994 following the death the previous year, at age of 47, of designer and teacher Michael Merritt. These awards are presented to nationally recognised theatrical designers committed to excellence and collaboration. The Michael Merritt Endowment also gives annual academic prizes to budding design students at Columbia College Chicago (where Merritt taught), Northwestern University, The Theatre School at DePaul University and Loyola University Chicago. At their annual event and exhibition prizes and honorariums are presented for best professional exhibit (the Michael Philippi Prize) and best student exhibit.[2]
