On June 2, the Illuminating Engineering Society of British Columbia (IESBC) announced its winners for the 2016 ‘Vision Awards’. The not-for-profit celebrates outstanding B.C. lighting engineers and designers for their local and international projects, and aids in the application of international award opportunities and IES’s ‘Illumination Awards’. Submissions for the ‘Illumination Awards’ open January 1, 2017.


IESBC’s ‘Vision Awards’ is stage one leading up to IES’s National ‘Illumination Awards’. This year’s winners in three categories include:

The Edwin F. Guth Memorial Award for Interior Lighting Design
In 1902 Edwin F. Guth founded the St. Louis Brass Company and later renamed it the Edwin F. Guth Company. Mr. Guth's profound creativity, entrepreneurialism and focus to improve interior lighting are partially represented through 147 patents awarded to him prior to his passing in 1962. This award recognizes exceptional interior lighting projects that balance the functional illumination of space with the artistic application of light to enhance the occupant's experience.

The Outdoor Lighting Design Award sponsored by Eaton
The Outdoor Lighting Design Award recognizes excellence in lighting design and application in all aspects of exterior lighting. The program celebrates achievements in aesthetics, applied technical acumen, creative solutions to demanding site conditions and advancements to the industry in outdoor lighting applications. The goal of the program is to further the understanding, knowledge and function of outdoor lighting as a critical aspect of the built environment. *Previously named the Paul Waterbury Award for Outdoor Lighting Design. Now sponsored by Eaton.


BC Hydro Redesign Award 

BC Hydro Power Smart presents the Lighting Redesign Award to recognize local talents that bring innovation and energy efficiency in lighting design. The Lighting Redesign Award recognizes quality lighting redesign, or major retrofit installations in existing commercial and industrial buildings, that incorporate advanced energy-saving strategies and environmentally responsible solutions into the overall design, without sacrificing visual interest.
