The 25th Society of Light and Lighting (SLL) Young Lighter of the Year competition is now open for entries.

Some outstanding winners and incredible projects over the years have helped cement this award as an invaluable stepping stone for lighting professionals in the early stages of their career. It is open to anyone with an interest in light and lighting, and entries can be on any light-related topic – from design, events, products or art installation, to name but a few examples.

Last year’s winner, Emma Beadle – a lighting engineer at WSP – won for her paper Children’s utopian vision of the city:co-designing lighting masterplans through play and exploration. This described how she engaged with young children on lighting design using co-design methods of working around observation, interviews and workshops. You can watch her video presentation, and those of the other three 2018 finalists, at bit.ly/2to1toS

Entries must be received by 10 May, and this year’s winner will receive a cash prize of £1,000. For further information and details of how to enter, visit www.cibse.org/sll
