Calling all lighting designers around the world! The 2023 L A M P International Lighting Design Competition is now accepting entries for its 9th edition, with a deadline of September 30, 2023. Design Milk is happy to once again be the media partner of the competition that devotes itself to promoting and connecting talented designers with new markets in lighting design. With each year’s competition we’re blown away by the submissions more and more!
There will once more be three main categories: Manufactured, Professional, and Student. Five sub-categories will include table, floor, chandelier/sconce, portable, and outdoor. In a twist, an additional ACOUSTIC category has been added for 2023 and is open to submissions from both students and established designers. An esteemed panel of judges will make their decisions based on a set of evaluations ranging from aesthetics to marketability and innovation.
If you need some inspiration, check out the winners from the L A M P 2022-2023 competition here. Follow @lampthecompetition on Instagram and register your designs today!
