IES Illumination Awards program is open for submissions

Submissions are now being accepted online for the 2014 IES Illumination Awards, a program that provides a unique opportunity for public recognition of professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design based upon the individual merit of each entry judged against specific criteria.

Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum that represents knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is based entirely on how well the lighting design does or does not meet the program criteria. This program is not a competition. The program is open to any qualified entrant without limitations as to professional affiliations. The Guth, Waterbury, Cutler, Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by Osram Sylvania and the Control Innovation Award sponsored by the Lighting Controls Association are parallel programs created to recognize outstanding lighting design.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 14, 2014 at 11:59pm EST.

Please visit the Illumination Awards website at to submit your project and to see projects of recent award recipients.
