“For more than 40 years, the Source Awards have helped bolster the pipeline of future lighting designers entering the industry,” said Kraig Kasler, president, Eaton’s lighting division. “We look forward to another year of seeing the many high-quality, creative and functional lighting designs submitted by the talented students who are the next generation of our industry.”
Selected entries will earn the distinction of winner, honourable mention or special recognition. The winner will receive a $2,000 award and honourable mention winners will each receive $500.
All winners will receive an invitation to attend a lighting seminar at the Source, Eaton’s lighting educational center.
Judging for the competition will take place in March 2018 by an independent panel of lighting and design professionals who have participated in the Source Awwards in the past, as well as a representative from the Source. Winners will be announced and recognized in May 2018 at Lightfair International in Chicago, Ill.
