Students-Get Your Projects Ready for The 2021 IESNYC Student Lighting Competition

In film, theatre, and immersive entertainment, a Practical light fixture refers to a lighting element that supports the aesthetic of the environment, serves as a place-maker, a motivating source which immerses guests in the world being described. This year, students are challenged to create a lighting installation that engages with the idea of using light in environmental storytelling — whether that is a fixture, a scene, an experience, or something beyond. Use lighting to transform and transport, to immerse and to engage — using materials and light sources common to the home.

Applications are due by Friday, February 19th, with final submissions due on March 10th. (link will be provided). The virtual event, judging and awards will be scheduled following the submissions, with a target date on Tuesday, March 23rd. Stay tuned for more details!
