About Lumen West

Lumen West
The annual Lumen West Awards is a uniquely combined event that celebrates outstanding lighting design by members of two of North America’s most prolific and talented sections of the Illuminating Engineering Society, the Los Angeles and Orange County sections. Lumen West also recognizes individual Section Service awards as well as announces the winners of the Russell Cole Memorial Student Lighting Design Competition.

About the Illumination Awards
The IES SoCal Illumination Awards program is the centerpiece of Lumen West and 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, design and construction excellence.

The judging system is entirely based on how well the lighting design meets the stated program criteria in four Award categories: Interior Illumination, Exterior Illumination, Controls Innovation and Energy and Environmental Design. These projects represent this year’s Awards of Merit and Awards of Excellence in their respective categories.
