For the first time ever, GE Appliances & Lighting will announce finalists in its annual GE Edison Award global lighting design competition as part of its participation in Light+Building 2010, one of the world’s leading trade fairs for architecture and technology.

“One of our primary objectives with the GE Edison Award is to shine a
spotlight on superior, forward-thinking lighting design,” said Mary
Beth Gotti, director of the GE Lighting & Electrical Institute, GE
Appliances & Lighting. “Our announcement of the finalists at
Light+Building 2010 is fitting because the GE Edison Award competition
draws entrants and interest from around the world.”

In the 26-year history of the GE Edison Awards, past winners have
hailed from the United States, Canada, Finland and Germany. Over the
last three years, about 30% of entrants have been from outside the
United States.

Light+Building is being held April 11-16 in Frankfurt, Germany. All
qualifying Edison Award entrants—the finalists named at Light+Building
2010—will be invited to an awards ceremony held May 11 in Las Vegas,
Nevada—the evening before the start of LightFair International.
