L A M P aims to introduce a broader audience to lighting design while promoting and connecting emerging talents to new markets. Each year the competition challenges designers to approach their lighting fixtures with the guidance of a theme. Competition Finalists from around the world are showcased at the annual L A M P Opening Reception in Vancouver, BC in November.
There are no limitations on material type; theme is open to broad interpretation.
Entry must be a produced, functioning light fixture, or prototype, by OCTOBER 17th 2016. Pendant, Wall, Table or Floor light fixtures are all eligible as long as their intended use is Indoor. (For Emerging & Established ONLY. Students are only required to submit a concept rendering.)
Entries MUST NOT exceed 5′ x 5′ x 5′ at 1:1 scale.
Entry must be an original creation without infringing on any creative copyright.
The submitted designs MUST NOT be, or contracted to be, mass-produced.
L A M P′s intention is to further elevate original work through media exposure and community networking with the hope of bringing the proposed product to a global market.
