Chicago, Illinois, USA – Luminaries of the lighting profession gathered online for the second time to honour the winners of the 38th Annual International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) International Lighting Design Awards, presented by Cooper Lighting Solutions, the longest running and one of the most prestigious lighting design awards programs in existence.           

20 projects were on display from 10 countries – including exteriors, interiors, memorials, hospitality, hospitals, retail, and places of worship. This year's winners represent some of the most innovative and inspiring architectural lighting design work found anywhere in the world.

IALD Awards Chair Mirjam Roos, IALD, CLD, commented, “Every year we see an increase in the quality of entries and this year is certainly no different. Our seven-member panel of judges evaluate each project submission for demonstration of excellence across ten distinct areas in a rigorous and blind process.”
