The LIT Lighting Design Awards was created to recognize the efforts of talented international lighting product designers and lighting implementers. We believe that lighting is both an art and a science, and is one of the most important elements of design. The LIT Awards were envisioned to celebrate creativity and innovation in the field of lighting products and applications.

This annual program aims to celebrate Projects, People, and their passion for the industry, through our rigorous judging process, we recognize those that have gone above and beyond.
