2013 Illumination Awards Program Booklet

Please submit you lighting project for consideration for a section award by October 1st, 2014. Our award commitie will judge each entry and awards will be presented in a December awards meeting. Winning entrees will be pased on to the IES for the 42nd Illumination awards in 2015.

The IES Illumination Awards provides a unique opportunity for public recognition of professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based upon the individual merit of each entry judged against specific criteria.


Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum that represents knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is based entirely on how well the lighting design does or does not meet the program criteria. This program is not a competition. The program is open to any qualified entrant without limitations as to professional affiliations. The Guth, Waterbury, Cutler, Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by Osram Sylvania and the Control Innovation Award sponsored by the Lighting Controls Association are parallel programs created to recognize outstanding lighting design.
