Illumination Awards

The IES Illumination Awards provide a unique opportunity for public recognition of professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based upon the individual merit of each entry judged against specific criteria. This program is not a competition.


The Illumination Award for Interior Lighting Design sponsored by Edwin F. Guth, the Illumination Award for Outdoor Lighting Design sponsored by Eaton, the Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by Osram Sylvania, and the Control Innovation Award sponsored by the Lighting Controls Association are parallel programs created to recognize outstanding lighting design. The projects that follow represent this year’s Final Award and Award of Merit recipients.
