Welcome to the IESNYC 2017 Lumen Awards Submission Site

On June 15, 2017, the New York City Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IESNYC) will pay tribute to the most outstanding lighting projects created by designers in New York City at the IESNYC annual Lumen Gala. Last year’s event drew a record-breaking attendance of nearly 900 guests from across the design and manufacturing sectors of the lighting industry.

The Lumen Awards were established in 1968 and developed to publicly recognize excellence, professionalism, ingenuity and originality in lighting design. Winning projects will be featured in the Lumen Journal, distributed at the Lumen Gala, published on the IESNYC website, and publicized via traditional and social media.

The Lumen Awards program recognizes excellence in lighting design with the following distinct award categories:

Lumen Award of Excellence
Highest level of achievement for a permanent architectural application

Lumen Award of Merit
Meritorious achievement for permanent architectural application

Lumen Citation
Special recognition for a permanent or temporary lighting installation, technical detail, portion of a single project, or other work
