Lighting Specifiers: the NLB needs your help!

You’ve been to lighting trade shows and conferences in 2022. You’ve been visited by agents and reps. That means you’ve seen a lot of new lighting products – luminaires, sources, controls, drivers and other lighting system accessories. What really impressed you? For technical innovation? For aesthetic appeal? Did you see products that represent real game-changers for the lighting industry?

Please nominate the best lighting products you’ve seen in 2022 for the NLB Art and Science of Lighting Awards. Award winners are determined by a panel of judges selected for this program. Awards will be presented at LEDucation 2023 in New York City.

Send your nominations through the brief form below by December 30, 2022. Nominations will only be accepted from lighting specifiers –  manufacturers cannot nominate products. Thank you!
