A new ‘supercategory’ is being introduced in the Lighting Design Awards for 2018.

The Global Project of the Year will be a supercategory, in which the shortlist is selected from all entries to all nine project categories.

It is designed to reward a scheme of outstanding creativity, high ambition and world-class execution.

In past it wasn’t always possible for the judging team to signal a project of true exceptionalism’ said Ray Molony, chairman of the judging panel. ‘The Global Project of the Year allows us to do just that in 2018.

‘Whoever wins this in its augural year will justifiably be able to claim a work of a world-beating standard.’

Finalists in the Global Project of the Year will be assessed and critiqued by the team of eminent judges.

The winners will be announced at the prestigious black-tie presentations ceremony at the flagship London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday 3 May 2018 before a 800-strong audience of lighting designers and architects.

Lighting Design Awards introduces live judging for 2018

In a first for an awards programme in the built environment, the Lighting Design Awards is introducing live judging.

A number of selected entrants in the project categories will be assessed and critiqued by the judges in what organisers are calling ‘a new benchmark in transparency’ for a competition of this type.

Anyone, anywhere in the world, can stream the deliberations in real time and watch and listen as the judges question finalists and cogitate on possible winners. They can even supply suggestions, questions and comments of their own to the judging panel during the process, allowing maximum engagement and participation.

‘We are proud that the Lighting Design Awards has always maintained the highest possible standards and that it has always been a leader,’ said Ray Molony, chairman of the judging panel. ‘The introduction of live judging is another innovation that we believe will increase transparency, engagement and credibility.’

The entrants will present their lighting design concept and its execution during the live judging and then face critiquing by the panel of judges, all highly experienced lighting design professionals.

The winners will be announced at the prestigious black-tie presentations ceremony at the flagship London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday 3 May 2018 before a 800-strong audience of lighting designers and architects. In 2017, the keynote speaker was the architect Daniel Libeskind.
