Piscataway, NJ, USA – 7 October 2020: The DALI Alliance (DiiA), the global industry organization for DALI lighting control, announces the call for entries to the inaugural DALI Lighting Awards.
Held in association with arc (the international architectural lighting design magazine) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), the awards will showcase and celebrate the best use of DALI control solutions in lighting projects across the world while also recognizing the importance of producing great quality illumination.
All types of commercial, architectural and industrial lighting projects linked with DALI technology can be nominated, and there are different categories for indoor and outdoor lighting. There is no entry fee, and entrants can nominate multiple projects on an individual basis or as part of a team. Entries can be submitted from any section of the supply chain (including lighting designers, electrical consultants, architects, installers and commissioning engineers among others) and there is no requirement for DALI Alliance membership to participate.
Judges for this year’s awards include Matt Waring, the editor of arc; lighting designer Tad Trylski, an active member of the IALD and former chair of its industry liaison group; and Scott Wade, Technical and Certification Manager for the DALI Alliance.
To submit a project, entrants are invited to complete an online entry form on the DALI Alliance website (www.dali2.org/awards). Entries for the Awards are open until 30 November 2020. The winners will be announced in January next year during a webinar hosted by arc magazine, and all entrants will receive publicity on the DALI Alliance website.
