SLL begins its search for 2020 Young Lighter of the Year

Award open to anyone with an interest in light and lighting

Anna Wawryniak – SLL Young Lighter of the Year 2019

Entries for the Society of Light and Lighting (SLL) Young Lighter 2020 are now being accepted.

The award is open to anyone with an interest in light and lighting, and the winner will be crowned SLL Young Lighter 2020 and receive £1,000.

Entries can be based on any light-related topic, from design, art installation, conservation, research or innovation.

The Young Lighter of the Year competition is a highprofile opportunity to help younger lighting professionals in the early stages of their career. Over the years, it has attracted some incredible projects and created notable winners, making it an invaluable platform to explore and discuss ideas relating to light.

The initial entry stage requires a short PowerPoint submission outlining the entry, with those shortlisted being asked to submit a short video expanding their ideas.

Finalists will be selected from this second stage, and invited to deliver a 15-minute presentation at LuxLive in November.
