We couldn’t have foreseen the devastating impact that Covid would have on all our lives and when we decided to honour all the WIL and WIL supporters who had achieved amazing things during 2020 and the start of 2021, we never imagined that we would still be in a similar global situation in 2022. So, whilst we still applaud everyone in this community who have never stopped dealing with issues caused by the pandemic with regard to our mental health, our work and our private lives and have helped us to remain connected, we have decided to point the WIL Awards in a different direction this year and honour some women in lighting outside the sphere of lighting design – namely Light Art, Education and Research and Engineering.
Please nominate women working in these lighting fields whose work you find unique, inspiring, worthy and believe the community should know about. Let’s get these amazing women some recognition and together, acknowledge their achievements. Submit your nomination here.
