Participants in the 2014 competition
UK - Applications are being sought by Rose Bruford College for its Junior Ready Steady Light 2015, a lighting design competition which offers teams the opportunity to win an amazing prize - to chance to redesign the architectural lighting of the National Theatre on London's Southbank.

Philips and the Society of Light and Lighting continue to sponsor Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance's hugely successful Junior Ready Steady Light competition for 2015. Rose Bruford College aims to attract eight teams from state schools, further education colleges and art organisations working with young people, made up of five year 12 and 13 students, or those similar in age, to participate in a full day of activities that lead up to the final competition and prize-giving ceremony.

This is an exciting opportunity for young people interested in science, art, design, technology and technical theatre to compete with each other; they will need a creative eye and be excellent collaborators to succeed.

Reflecting on the experience, Rich Hill, Course Leader in Production Arts and tutor of 2014's winning team, City College Norwich said: "The students had an amazing time taking part in the competition. Their design was evidently very well executed and really tested the boundaries of what people consider reality. This experience allowed them to gain a more thorough understanding of lighting design and shows their peers on the Production Courses that careers are ever present and accessible. Whilst giving the students the opportunity to get a real taste of their potential in degree level learning."

The entry fee is £50 per team - and only one team per organisation can enter. To enter, visit the Rose Bruford College online store at
