GE Lighting is calling for entries for its 32nd annual GE Edison Award competition. The award program recognizes excellence and quality in professional lighting designs that make significant use of GE Lighting products, including LED systems, luminaires, architectural products, lamps and modules, as well as lighting controls and non-LED lamps and luminaires.
Online entries must be received by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Jan. 19, 2015. To submit a project, applicants should go to the GE Edison Award entry website for full details.
The competition is open to professional designers, architects, engineers and consultants for projects completed during the 2013 and 2014 calendar years. Online entries are judged on the following criteria: functional excellence; architectural compatibility; effective use of state-of-the-art lighting products and techniques; appropriate color, form and texture revelation; energy efficiency and cost effectiveness.
In addition to these distinctions, an Award for Residential Lighting Design is presented to the project that best exemplifies excellence in lighting design within a residential application, using the same criteria as the other award categories. For this category, judges are looking for designs with innovative application(s) of light and the creative integration of lighting layers and controls.
