LIT LIGHTING DESIGN AWARDS: ENTERTAINMENT LIGHTING DESIGN
The LIT Design Awards ™ was created to recognize the efforts of talented international lighting product designers and lighting implementers. We believe that lighting is both an art and a science, and it is one of the most important elements of design. The LIT Awards was envisioned to celebrate creativity and innovation in the fields of lighting products and applications.
Lighting designers use light to create atmosphere and mood, to shape and define space, to reveal form, and to draw attention to specific elements of a performance or event. Like other forms of art, lighting design requires the designer to have a deep understanding of the medium they are working with, in this case, light and its properties, as well as the ability to express themselves in a way that resonates with the audience.
ENTERTAINMENT LIGHTING DESIGN OF THE YEAR – PROFESSIONAL
The Entertainment Lighting Design of the Year Award recognizes the people and practices striving towards excellence in lighting design implementation and application. The lighting director, architect, electrical engineer, interior designer, landscape architect, urban planner, etc., each creates the mood and ambiance of space with their lighting implementation. There would be no architectural, interior design, or landscape design achievements without the right lighting – which is the reason we want to recognize this essential part of the design process through the LIT Awards.
The Entertainment Lighting Design of the Year recipient will receive the coveted LIT Awards Trophy, the project will be showcased to a global audience, be featured in the LIT Awards annual Book of Design, and be given the opportunity to share more of their vision and project in winner’s interviews. Additionally, the winning lighting design implementer will be promoted in a newsletter to 100,000 lighting and design professionals and potential clients worldwide, receive coverage on our website throughout the year, and critical acclaim by our distinguished panel of judges. Other benefits included:
Inclusion in the winning media campaign, targeting industry professionals and potential clients worldwide

Entries can be submitted as conceptual designs, in progress, or as completed projects. The only restriction is that entries or completed projects must be no more than 5 years old. The Entertainment Lighting Design of the Year is open to professional only.
Winners are chosen based on a single project – not for a body of work.
The evaluation process for entries to the LIT Lighting Design Awards is based on various judging criteria that are constantly adapted to new technical, social, economic, and ecological requirements. These criteria are not comprehensive and not all criteria are applicable to each product. They simply provide an orientation framework and basis for judging, which is complemented by each individual juror’s expertise and socio-cultural background.
Each member of the Jury is passionately committed to providing a fair evaluation. Jury members are assigned categories based on their specific background and expertise. All projects are viewed and judged randomly and anonymously to ensure unbiased and fair judging.
The judging criteria include the following:
Innovation — does the product provide something new to the market or supplement/improve an existing product?
Aesthetics — form, shape, color, texture, finishing, the material used, etc.
Functionality — ease of use, safety, maintenance, etc.
Ergonomics — the product’s interaction with the user
Durability — the quality and longevity of the design
Impact — the benefit delivered to the user and/or society by the product
Utility — does the product meet the intended purpose and needs of the user?
All entries are voted on by a grand jury panel composed of experienced and prominent academics, professionals, press members, entrepreneurs and key people from the lighting design industry.
