Boya Bøckman won The Hedda Awards 2012 in the category of best visual design for The Art of Being Tamed by De Utvalge.
The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:
"Stage design is often today the most exciting aspect of many productions, and whether the visual takes a minimalist or maximalist form, the stage image may add an exciting dimension of its own to the performance. At times this year's winner lets his particular talent be led by a chief stage design project, and successfully so. But the winner gets the award for having created a dizzyingly beautiful three-dimensional universe complementing and giving life to a text that is both simple and mysterious, into which the rich, diverse visual expression opens endlessly many free associations.
The best visual design award goes to Boya Bøckman for a theatrical (in the best possible sense of the word) video and light design for De Utvalgte's The Art of Being Tamed at Black Box Teater."
Boya Bøckman and Simon Revholt were nominated for The Hedda Award 2017 in the best audiovisual design category for their contributions to Orlando at Rogaland Theatre, video design and composition respectively.
Boya Bøckman received The Hedda Award 2019 in the best audiovisual design category for his work on The Ship Vol. 5, De Utvalgte, and on Lazarus, The Norwegian Theatre.
The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award:
"The award goes to an audiovisual work that is not just an effect, well integrated in the performance, but also an active co-performer and deliverer of terms. The work ranges from the fully staged and directed to experiences of losing direction in one's own life. Moving from the created, studio-inspired stage design as framework, to a scarred quarry, the award winner manages to enter and create cosmic and human universes- as an innovator in his field."
De Utvalgte also received The Hedda Award 2019 in the special artistic achievement category for the production The Ship Vol. 5.
