Iain Carlile, SLL president and senior associate at dpa lighting consultants, comments: “It’s always great to see the next generation of lighting professionals demonstrate their talent and passion for lighting, be that through the presentation of novel project application, social study, technological development, lighting research or any other lighting related topic.
