    One for light, light for all 


    The CLUE competition, an annual celebration of the best in lighting, launches its third edition under the theme One for Light, Light for All. CLUE invites new and emerging members of the industry to reflect on the possibilities for extending the personalization of private spaces to the personalization of public spaces. Candidates are given carte blanche to propose innovative lighting solutions relating to this theme by January 31, 2017, the deadline for submissions.

    Winners will be selected by a jury of professionals representing various positions within the international lighting and design community. In addition to a global platform, winners will receive one of three grants totaling $8,500, as well as a trip to Philadelphia for LIGHTFAIR® International 2017.
