L A M P aims to introduce a broader audience to lighting design while promoting and connecting emerging talents to new markets. Each year the competition challenges designers to approach their lighting fixtures with the guidance of a theme. Competition Finalists from around the world are showcased at the L A M P Opening Reception in Vancouver, BC.

Moving into our 5th year of the competition & exhibition L A M P is evolving from an annual competition & event to a biannual format. This will provide designers time to fully execute their designs and prototypes for the entry deadline & exhibition. 

“The history of architecture is the history of the struggle for light.”
