The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America , sponsor of the International Illumination Design Awards (IIDA), announced the award recipients for 2008. The Society received 400 entries resulting in 8 International Awards and 151 Awards of Merit . The International Awards included one Award of Distinction, five Awards for Excellence and two Special Citations. The International Awards will be presented at the Welcome Event in conjunction with the IES Annual Conference on Nov. 9, in Savannah, Ga.

 

The IIDA program recognizes individuals for professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based on the individual merit of each entry. Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum representing knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is based on how well the lighting design meets the program criteria. The IIDA program is not a competition.

 

The IIDAs comprise four parallel programs:

• The Edwin F. Guth Memorial Award for Interior Lighting Design honors the memory of fixture manufacturer Guth, who held 147 patents at the time of his death in 1962.

• The Paul Waterbury Award for Outdoor Lighting Design honors Waterbury’s achievements, including the development of 1,500-W metal halide lamps for stadium use.

• The Aileen Page Cutler Memorial Award for Residential Lighting Design honors Cutler, the developer of new and creative ways to light residences.

• The Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by OSRAM SYLVANIA recognizes quality lighting installations in commercial and industrial buildings that incorporate advanced energy-saving strategies and environmentally responsible solutions into the overall design.
