Queensland Awards

 

Queensland Lighting Awards 2017

 

This years Annual Dinner will be held on 17 November 2017

 

The Illuminating Engineering Society of Australia and New ZealandLimited (Queensland Chapter) invites Owners and/or Designers of recently completed lighting installations in metropolitan and regional areas to nominate for the 2017 Queensland Lighting Awards.

 

The Awards represent the Queensland Chapter’s most important contribution to the recognition and promotion of the art and science of illuminating engineering in Queensland. As well as giving acclaim to designs of high standard, the Society believes that in promoting the awards, the concept of professionalism in the industry is enhanced and the importance of lighting design is publically acknowledged.

 

Nominators should consider carefully the area or areas submitted for judging. It is not unusual for an installation to have individual areas of high merit but in total is not considered to justify an award.

 

Nominations will not be accepted for luminaire design. The Society conducts a separate Luminaire Design
Award competition each year to recognise excellence in the design of luminaires.

 

Nominations must be submitted in accordance with the Conditions of Entry and comprise the official Entry
Form, Designer’s Statement, appropriate material available electronically and the entry fee.


Remote or overseas entries should also include video / MP3 / YouTube footage as judges may not be able
to personally view the entry. Remote and overseas entries may also be required to make a presentation to the judging panel to provide a more detailed insight into the lighting design.


We encourage those who have interesting Visual effects or Artworks, Special Events, Public and Heritage
buildings, Landscaping, Residential and Retail to enter the awards.


In 2017, the entry fee is $280.00 for members and $325.00 for Non-Members (including GST).

 

A1 SIZE DISPLAY BOARDS COMPRISING  PHOTOGRAPHS AND SUMMARY INFORMATION WILL BE REQUIRED WITH ALL ENTRIES. BOARDS WILL BE DISPLAYED AT VARIOUS IES FUNCTIONS AND THE RAIA QUEENSLAND HEADQUARTERS.

 

DISPLAY BOARDS ARE TO BE DELIVERED TO THE RAIA QUEENSLAND OFFICE NO LATER THAN 2 DAYS BEFORE THE ANNUAL DINNER.

 

Nominators should note that the details supplied on the Entry Form for the Installation, Owner/Lessee,
Lighting Designer(s) and Predominant Lighting Equipment Manufacturer will be used exactly as submitted on any certificate awarded. Any nominator requesting a variation to the certificate, once printed, will bear the full cost of reprinting the certificates.

 

It should also be noted that those parties to appear on the certificates should only be those that had a significant involvement in the design and for example, should not be a list of all lighting equipment
manufacturers whose equipment had been specified and installed.
