Power management company Eaton announced the call for entries for the 42nd Annual SOURCE Awards, Eaton’s lighting design competition dedicated to celebrating the next generation of lighting professionals and building the pipeline of industry talent.

University students studying architecture, design, engineering or related disciplines are invited to enter this conceptual design competition focused on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design. The deadline to submit entries is February 25, 2019.

“This competition is designed with students in mind. As the future of the lighting design industry, we invite students to feel encouraged to think creatively about overcoming real-world design challenges while gaining practical experience in the process,” said Kraig Kasler, President, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “We look forward to seeing the high-quality designs submitted by talented students and recognising their innovative projects.”

The SOURCE Awards competition is open to students currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs in lighting or interior design, architecture, engineering or related disciplines. Students are eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs and will be judged on creativity and how Eaton lighting and controls products are used in conceptual spaces.

Each project will be judged on its own merit and selected entries will earn the distinction of Winner, Honourable Mention or Special Award of Recognition. The winner will receive a $2,000 award and honourable mention winners will each receive $500. All winners will receive a crystal trophy, local and national recognition and an invitation to attend a lighting seminar at the SOURCE.
