One of the SLL’s flagship events, every year the Ready Steady Light (RSL) competition, sees teams competing against each other to design and set up temporary exterior installations with a limited range of equipment in only 180 minutes.
Returning to basic engineering and design, teams are tasked with lighting their site in its natural state with the equipment provided. They each have to overcome challenges without a budget and within the time constraints.
Whilst the lighting community has worked to overcome the challenges presented by the pandemic, day to day work has continued. There have been new starters and the same requirements to support development but without the crucial interaction of getting to work alongside colleagues in a shared space. The Society felt it was more important than ever to provide design practices, students and lighting professionals with an opportunity to have fun and work together, with the added element of some friendly competition.
SLL Ready Steady Light in association with Rose Bruford College returned on Tuesday 17th October 2023 with a record number of teams taking part. There were three awards up for grabs. A panel of expert judges decided the winners of the SLL Technical and Artistic Award, supported by the IALD, with the coveted Peer Prize decided by the contestants taking part.
