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 Lighting Control Innovation Award Sponsored by Lighting Controls Association, the Guth Award for Interior Lighting Design, the Outdoor Lighting Design Award sponsored by Eaton's Cooper Lighting Business, the Cutler Award for Residential Lighting Design and the Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by Osram Sylvania are parallel programs created to recognize outstanding lighting design.
