The 2016 Victorian Lighting Design Awards (VLiDA) and Victorian Luminaire Design Awards (VLuDA) are open for judging.

The design awards are an annual event in Victoria and are celebrated in October at the prestigious Awards Dinner celebration. Lighting projects and luminaires designed and manufactured in Victoria are adjudicated by a professional panel of experienced practitioners in the fields of luminaire manufacture, interior design and lighting design. Winners of Excellence Awards are later adjudicated by a national judge for the International IESANZ LiDA Lighting and LuDA Luminaire Awards. The VLiDA and VLuDA awards are open to anyone with a valid project or luminaire. Membership of the IES is not a requirement.
