The Lighting Designer of the Year Award and Emerging Lighting designer of the Year recognize the people and practices striving towards excellence in lighting design implementation and application. The lighting director, arzchitect, electrical engineer, interior designer, landscape architect, urban planner, etc., each creates the mood and ambiance of space with their lighting implementation.

We have created a list of the best tips to guide you through the submission process, step by step, making sure your design entry is strong and will have a positive impact on the Jury:
Complete your user/company profile. Our system provides an auto-generated invoice for your submission fees, so please add your company address, e-mail, VAT number, etc. Also, share your company information, and any previous awards won!
Since we have an international jury panel, the project description, credits, and other information should be written in English.
The entry description is one of the most essential parts of your submission, so make your description engaging and interesting; keep it succinct, but still, give as much information as possible; share the original idea for the design, the creative trigger, how it contributes to society or local communities, etc.
You can upload up to 10 images with each entry. Select some images that give an overall view of the product design, and others which are close-up shots. Please keep in mind that in case you have a winning submission, the cover image (the first image you upload) will be displayed on the website Winners Gallery and in the Annual LIT Book, so it should be the image that best represents your entry overall.
Don’t forget you can also upload a PDF file with any additional project details, 3D drawings, product specifications, business plans, or any other information you may feel is important to share with the Jury. This is done on the Image Upload stage of the submission.
Credit all of the designers that took part in the project. You can also add photographer and model credits as appropriate.
Each submission category has many sub-categories for you to choose from and many entries would fit in multiple sub-categories. To increase your chance of winning we recommend that you enter the projects in more than 1 sub-category. A 50% discount is offered when entering your design in additional sub-categories.
