The LightFair Innovation Awards (LIAs) highlight the industry’s top innovations introduced since the last LightFair. They celebrate the ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness of our industry’s manufacturers, researchers, developers, scientists, and designers.
Congratulations to the winners of the LightFair Innovation Awards 2023. An independent panel of judges from the IES and IALD reviewed each submission and selected a Category Winner for each of the 11 categories. Further, they continued to review the top 11 to select the Most Innovative Product of 2023, Technical Innovation Award and Design Excellence Award.
Judging criteria included the product’s clarity of purpose, versatility, adaptability, sustainability, ease of use, design efficiency and aspects that enhanced human wellbeing, among others. Although selecting winners was not easy, these products stood out in winning the nod from our judges.

The Judges’ Citation Award is not chosen from among the Best of Category Awards. Rather, the judges consider all products submitted and select a product worthy of note. Often a product may be playful, establish a technical milestone, represent a special uniqueness, or evoke something personal in the judges: “I want one!” “I have a project right now for which this is made!” “Why haven’t we seen this before?”, or “It’s about time!”
