ABOUT THE AWARDS

The oldest and most prestigious architectural lighting design competition on the global stage, the IALD International Lighting Design Awards showcases excellence in architectural lighting design through its winning projects. All lighting designers are welcome to enter the program.

“The IALD Awards program is designed to elevate the profile of lighting designers by recognizing exceptional architectural lighting design around the globe,” says IALD President Victor Palacio, IALD. “Projects that win IALD awards are remarkable examples of the many ways in which users experience spaces—as a result of lighting and of the visual atmospheres created by quality designs.”

“The IALD Awards is a living program, meant to capture the most impressive and successful projects at the highest level of architectural lighting design excellence,” says IALD International Lighting Design Awards Co-Chair, Dawn Hollingsworth, FIALD. “

“We encourage projects of all sizes and scopes to enter,” adds IALD International Lighting Design Awards Co-Chair Morgan Gabler, IALD. “What matters is that your project has a compelling story and makes a powerful impact on a space.”

All award recipients will be announced on Wednesday, 9 May 2018 at the IALD Education Trust Benefit Dinner and 35th Annual IALD International Lighting Design Awards Presentation in Chicago, IL USA.
