The Illumination Engineering Society is accepting applications for the 47th Illumination Awards.
The IES Illumination Awards program recognizes individuals for professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based on the individual merit of each entry. Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum, representing knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is entirely based on how well the lighting design meets the program criteria. The Illumination Awards program is not a competition.
Early bird submission fees are $150 per entry until January 31, 2020. Entries between Feb.1 and Feb. 21 are $200 per entry.
A 300-word project narrative, 10 images and 1 video upload can be submitted for each project.
The IES Illumination Awards are comprised of four parallel program categories:
