November 12, 2015 | By Renée Francoeur

November 12, 2015 – Eaton has announced that it’s now accepting entries from professionals and students alike for the 39th Annual Source Awards national lighting design competition.

The competition—which focuses on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design—is open to all lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers and consultants who use Eaton’s lighting and controls products for interior or exterior design projects. Students currently enrolled in any of these disciplines are also eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs and will be judged in a separate student category.

“There are many talented lighting specifiers and students that should be recognized for their creative and outstanding work,” said Kraig Kasler, president of Eaton’s Lighting Division. “We’re always looking for innovative uses and techniques of our lighting and controls products and this competition is a reflection of that.”

The competition asks participants to enter projects that “combine aesthetics, creativity and technical performance to address specific lighting needs while meeting project constraints and design concept goals.” The competition notes it also seeks a creative use of fixtures providing energy-efficient design solutions in addition to standard projects.


The student winner(s) will receive a $1500 award and professional winner(s) will receive $2000.

The competition deadline is January 20, 2016 and winners will be announced in April 2016 at Lightfair International in San Diego.
