The 17th Annual Student Lighting Competition is Accepting Applications!
Deadline is February 15, 2017
This year’s theme, LIGHT, SCALED, challenges students to construct a three-dimensional study that explores the scale of light and its impact on perception. Light informs our perception of scale and space, changing how we see the world around us. As we move through our environment and shift our perspective, the scale of light influences our perception. Light is present at every scale: as a traveling photon, a playful luminaire, or the memorable Manhattan skyline. So students, get your thinking caps on for another year of creative lighting design.
