The LIT Design Awards now is opened for entries! This competition was created to recognize the efforts of talented international lighting product designers and lighting implementer. They believe that lighting is both an art and a science, and it is one of the most important elements of design. LIT was envisioned to celebrate the creativity and innovation in the fields of lighting products and application.
- The Lighting Product Design of the Year Award recognizes the efforts of talented lighting product designers who improve and perfect the quality of design and quality of light emitted by their designs. - The Lighting Designer of the Year Award recognizes the people and practices striving towards excellence in lighting design implementation and application. The lighting director, architect, electrical engineer, interior designer, landscape architect, urban planner etc., each create the mood and ambience of a space with their lighting implementation. There would be no architectural, interior design or landscape design achievements without the right lighting – which is the reason we want to recognize this essential part of the design process through the Lit Awards.
