The competition, now in its 20th year, provides a unique platform for young lighters and is open to all those under 30. The competition gives the young lighters an opportunity to write a paper on a lighting subject, hone their presentation skills in front of an invited panel of judges, and raise their profile within the industry.
The initial call for papers went out in January and entries were received on all lighting related subjects, the lighters were then shortlisted on the quality and talent shown in their abstracts and their video presentations. Last year’s winner, Rachael Nicholls AMSLL, was awarded the prize for her presentation, ‘Task Lighting at the Hospital Bed,’ in front of the Lux Awards Dinner attendees at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel.
The Finalists announced are:
Janna Aronson, Lichtkompetenz GmbH
James Duff, Arup
Katerina Konsta, Atkins Global
Veronika Labancova, Isometrix
All finalists receive a cash prize along with a year’s membership to SLL.
