Entries are open for the 2017 Society of Light and Lighting (SLL) Young Lighter of the Year Competition, which is now in its 23rd year.

The contest offers a unique platform to young lighters and is open to all. It allows young lighters to present their knowledge and research on a lighting subject, hone their presentation skills, and raise their profile within the industry.

Shortlisted finalists will give a 15-minute presentation to a LuxLive audience in November 2017, and all finalists will receive a cash prize, plus a year’s free membership of SLL.

Watch the 2016 shortlisted video presentations – and read last year’s winning paper, Variable lighting levels for highways, by Sofia Tolia.

Entrants should be aged 30 or under on the closing date of 8 May. Enter now at the CIBSE SLL website.
