Nominations open for Excellence in Lighting awards

Lighting Council Australia has opened nominations for next year’s National Awards for Excellence in Lighting.

The Council is seeking nominations of individuals or companies that have excelled in various lighting-related areas

The awards will be handed out in June next year at an event in Hyde Park, Sydney.

Awards will be handed out across nine categories, covering areas such as environmental sustainability, the deployment of lighting within building automation systems, and excellence in public or street lighting.

Other award categories cover smart lighting and IoT projects, as well as to individuals or companies that have demonstrated outstanding engagement with industry peers, and to those making an outstanding contribution to lighting-based standards.

The award categories also include a Young Achievement Award open to individuals under the age of 35, a best small business award open to companies with an annual turnover of under $10 million, and an overall innovation award.

During this year’s National Awards for Excellence in Lighting in May, Mark Bejatovic from Mercator Lighting won the Overall Innovation Award, while LOWA Lighting’s Sal Maresca accepted the award for Best Small Business.

Meanwhile enLighten’s Steve Cahill won the Sustainability Award, Pecan Lighting’s Terry Howard won the Public/Street Lighting Award, Efficient Lighting Systems’ Rick Dockerty picked up the Smart Lighting/IoT Award, and Signify’s Ratko Milosavljevic scored the Building Automation Award.

The Award for Outstanding Engagement with Industry went to Legrand Australia’s Paul Barron, and Clevertronics’ Michael Duce won the Award for Outstanding Contribution to Standards.

Finally, Young Achievement Awards were handed to Empyrean Lighting’s Gemma Smallfield and Azoogi’s Ariel Avner, and a special Lifetime Achievement Award went to Beacon Lighting’s Ian Robinson.
