Lighting Industry Association updates Delight in Light awards

March 8, 2013
Date Announced: 08 Mar 2013 The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) is delighted to announce a major revision to their National Student Lighting Design Awards, which have been running now for over 30 years.‘Delight in Light’ is a new concept we have created to encourage excellence in the design of lighting products. The new look awards will be run through a dedicated website which will embrace changes in the way budding young designers and businesses can communicate with each other, with online engagement and social media taking a central role.The design brief has also been re-worked to encourage the best from design students across the UK and once submitted, completely free, of charge to the website the entries are ready for public viewing, and voting. Those designs receiving the largest number of votes will be forwarded to a ‘Dragon's Den’ style final. The panel of judges has been carefully chosen from the lighting industry and the design world at large and will be held at the UK’s biggest design event, 100% Design between 18-21 September. It is wonderful news that such a well renowned event has agreed to host the event this year, and provide such a great platform for the start of a young designers career.“It is a great thrill to be working with the Lighting Industry Association and their membership to stage the re-launched Delight in Light award this September. The partnerships reflects a commitment to quality and innovation and taps into 100% Design's heritage of launching the careers of some of the brightest design stars of the future” (William Knight, 100% Design’s Show Director)The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) is thrilled to play a central role in this project and believes it enhances one of its key directives, which is to promote excellence in the field of lighting and the significant benefits that good design can provide. Ultimately improving the quality, and appropriateness of light for people both at home and in the office.Please go to for more information
