The Designers Lighting Forum of New York (DLFNY) is excited to announce the opening of submissions for the inaugural Beacon Awards, honoring exceptional achievements in lighting design. Submissions are open from Monday, June 3, 2024, until September 4, 2024. The awards ceremony will be held on October 9, 2024, at Sony Hall in New York City.

The Beacon Awards will recognize excellence in seven categories: New York Project, Commercial & Institutional, Exteriors, Residential, Hospitality & Retail, Product Design, and an ICON Award. Eligible participants include lighting designers, consultants, architects, interior designers, and industrial designers practicing in the greater New York Metro area.

All proceeds from the Beacon Awards will support the Lenar Lighting Empowerment Scholarship, established to nurture the next generation of lighting designers. This scholarship honors the late Lana Lenar, a distinguished lighting designer and principal at zeroLux.

“The Beacon Awards are DLFNY’s way of publicly recognizing excellence in lighting design,” said Charles Pavarini III, Founder of Pavarini Design and Chair of the Beacon Awards. “The awards also celebrate the legacies of Caroline Rinker, an early advocate of the Beacon Awards, and Lana Lenar, in whose name we established a scholarship.”

Winners in each category, including Product Design and five other typologies, will be selected by the Beacon Awards 2024 jury. The jury comprises industry leaders such as interior designer Clodagh (Clodagh Designs), educator and lighting designer Shaun Fillion (RAB Lighting and NYSID), interior designer Elvira Gershengon (Huntsman Architecture), lighting designer Paul Gregory (Focus Lighting), architect Barry Richards (The Rockwell Group), lighting designer and strategic consultant Sara Schonour (luxsi), and lighting designer Atilla Uysal (Lumen Architecture).

The ICON Award will honor an individual, studio, or firm that has significantly contributed to advancing lighting design in the built environment. The recipient of this prestigious award will be selected by the DLFNY Awards Committee and approved by the DLFNY Board.

Winners will be announced and celebrated at the Beacon Awards Ceremony on October 9, 2024, at Sony Hall in Midtown Manhattan. For more details and to submit entries, please visit Beacon Awards.
