Power management company Eaton announced the call for entries for the 42nd Annual SOURCE Awards, Eaton’s lighting design competition dedicated to celebrating the next generation of lighting professionals and building the pipeline of industry talent.

University students studying architecture, design, engineering or related disciplines are invited to enter this conceptual design competition focused on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design. The deadline to submit entries is February 25, 2019.

The SOURCE Awards competition is open to students currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs in lighting or interior design, architecture, engineering or related disciplines. Students are eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs and will be judged on creativity and how Eaton lighting and controls products are used in conceptual spaces.

Each project will be judged on its own merit and selected entries will earn the distinction of Winner, Honourable Mention or Special Award of Recognition. The winner will receive a $2,000 award and honourable mention winners will each receive $500.

Judging for the 42nd Annual SOURCE Awards competition will take place in March 2019 by an independent panel of lighting and design professionals who have taken part in the SOURCE Awards in the past, as well as a representative from the SOURCE. Winning students and their faculty advisors will be announced and recognised in May 2019 at LIGHTFAIR International in Philadelphia.
