Here’s the really exciting bit! Once the entries have been shortlisted by a panel of international lighting designers (to be announced), it’s over to you!

In the first ever peer-to-peer system for a lighting design awards, every independent architectural lighting designer and light artist will be encouraged to vote online for their favourite lighting schemes (and no, you can’t vote for your own!). It will be the Oscars of the lighting design profession!

The product categories for architectural lighting will also be voted on by independent lighting designers and light artists. This means that the winners will be a reflection of the designer’s experience of the products – whether they’ve been shown it, seen a demonstration or even used it in a project or test. This will be an entirely democratic vote and will not be influenced in any way by keen editors or advertising staff!
