Lighten UP!

This is not just another virtual event. Assemble a team up to 4 and let the creativity begin!

Participants will have 24 hours to design and create a luminaire based on a given theme using resources and LED light source from their home. Each Section will have a People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice winner, based on aesthetics, creativity, and theme interpretation. The Judge’s award winner from your participating section will be submitted for international voting on the IES Lighten Up webpage. Grand prize (and of course bragging rights) is still in the works.

Please RSVP to be added to the list of competitors. The “theme” will be released at the beginning of the event August 13th. Participants have 24 hours to create their luminaire and submit images of the final design by 6pm August 14th. Max of 4 people per group allowed.
