The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) has announced the opening of registration and entry process for its 36th Annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards. The early deadline for entering the awards program is 2nd October and the final deadline is 5th November.
The IALD Awards program is designed to elevate the profile of lighting designers by recognizing exceptional architectural lighting design around the globe. Projects that win IALD awards are remarkable examples of the many ways in which users experience spaces—as a result of lighting and of the visual atmospheres created by quality designs.
The award-winning projects will be announced on Wednesday, 22 May 2019 at the 2019 IALD Education Trust Benefit Dinner and 36th Annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards Presentation in Philadelphia, PA USA.
Any individual lighting designer or lighting design firm may enter a project for an award; awards will be granted only to the team or teams that performed the design of the architectural lighting for the project. The project must be a permanent architectural lighting design solution for which construction was completed after 1 June 2017. Projects entered last year can be resubmitted, as long as they adhere to the date requirements.
