The competition, organised by the Society of Light and Lighting, provides a chance for young lighting students and professionals to investigate a lighting subject of their choice. Following the submission of a written paper the short-listed candidates were whittled down to four finalists who, together with the Republic of Ireland regional winner, presented their papers at the ARC show last month.

Kerem Asfuroglu was awarded the Worshipful Company of Lightmongers prize for the best presentation with his paper on the use of water as a form of daylight control. Christopher Knowlton was also awarded the ILP prize for best written paper.

The award continues to attract entries from across the world. This year’s final included competitors from Greece, Turkey and Ireland.
