Eaton’s Cooper Lighting Accepting Entries for 38th SOURCE Awards
Power management company Eaton today announced that its Cooper Lighting Division is now accepting entries for the 38th Annual SOURCE Awards national lighting design competition.
The competition, which focuses on furthering the understanding, knowledge and function of lighting as a primary element in design, is open to all lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers and consultants who use lighting and controls products from Eaton’s Cooper Lighting business in interior or exterior design projects. Students currently enrolled in any of these disciplines are also eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs and will be judged in a separate student 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, and winners will be announced in May 2015 at LIGHTFAIR International in New York, New York. There will be no minimum or maximum number of awards given, as each project will be judged on its own merit. Selected entries will earn the distinction of Winner, Honorable Mention or Award of Recognition.
Judging for the 38th Annual SOURCE Awards competition will take place in February 2015 by a professional, independent panel of lighting and design professionals, as well as a representative from the SOURCE, Eaton’s premier lighting education centre. The student winner(s) will receive a $1,500 award and professional winner(s) will receive $2,000. All winners will receive a crystal trophy, local and national recognition, and an invitation to attend a lighting seminar at the SOURCE, located in Peachtree City, Georgia. The faculty adviser of the winning student(s) will also be invited to attend the seminar.
