UK Lighting Design Awards ready to roll

5 March 2014 14.45 GMT

(UK) - Record amount of entries for UK's premier lighting awards competition.

The 12th annual UK Lighting Design Awards will take place on March 20, 2014 at the Park Lane Hilton, London. This year's awards have seen more entries than ever before and the judges have had a tough task selecting the shortlist. Since their inception, the Lighting Design Awards have been at the heart of the industry calendar, shining a light on the most talented companies the industry has to offer and the 2014 awards are no exception.

Ben Cronin, editor of Lighting said of this year's shortlist: “This year we've seen an increased number of entries from international lighting design firms, particularly from the Far East and Germany. We are also starting to see a large number of 100 per cent LED lighting schemes. We look forward to seeing who the judges select as this year's winners.”

The most nominations went to Into Lighting with six shortlisted projects. Following closely behind with five nominations were Hoare Lea Lighting and Paul Nulty Lighting Design.

It promises to be a glamorous affair with over 800 of the lighting industry's brightest individuals in the room. The event will also see the announcement of the iGuzzini glowstick photo competition winner; a three-course dinner; the glittering awards ceremony and the 80s-themed acdc after-show party.
