2015 Lighting for Tomorrow Competition

The annual Lighting for Tomorrow competition was created in 2002 to recognize the best decorative, energy efficient lighting fixtures in the residential market. Lighting for Tomorrow encourages manufacturers to develop well designed, energy efficient lighting products with a specific goal of increasing the market availability of ENERGY STARĀ® residential lighting fixtures.

In 2015, Lighting for Tomorrow is seeking residential solid state lighting and lighting controls products that incorporate and enable superior efficiency, light quality, and new levels of integrated design. Lighting for Tomorrow award winners receive a full year of publicity and promotion at various trade shows and through the residential lighting programs of Sponsor organizations in the United States and Canada. More details on the competition background, timeline, eligible products, and entry process can be found on the Entrant Guides page.
