 Source AwardEaton’s Cooper Lighting Division is now accepting entries for the 38th Annual SOURCE Awards national lighting design competition.

The competition is open to lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers and consultants who use lighting and controls from Eaton’s Cooper Lighting business in both interior and exterior design projects. Students enrolled in any of the above disciplines can also enter the competition and will be judged in a separate student-only category. 

“We’re always looking for the most creative and innovative use of state-of-the-art lighting products and techniques,” said Mark Eubanks, president, Eaton’s Cooper Lighting Division. “This competition is a reflection of that outlook with the call for entries going out to designers and students alike. The awards ask participants to combine aesthetics, creativity and technical performance to address specific lighting needs while meeting project constraints and design concept goals.”    

Entries must be postmarked on or before January 30, 2015, with the winners to be announced in May 2015 at Lightfair International in New York, NY. There will be no minimum or maximum number of awards given, as each project will be judged on its own merit. 

Judging will ttake place in February 2015 by a professional, independent panel of lighting and design professionals, as well as representatives from SOURCE, Eaton’s lighting education center. 

Student winners will receive a $1,500 award and professional winners will receive $2,000. All winners will get a crystal trophy, local and national recognition, and an invitation to attend a lighting seminar at the SOURCE in Peachtree City, GA.
