The 2012 CLU Foundation Contest – LIGHTITUDE

Concept Lumière Urbaine (CLU) Foundation recently launched another edition of its annual international exterior lighting design contest. Students and young professional are now invited to submit creative ideas for lightning urban areas above the Polar circle.

The 2012 CLU Foundation Contest is titled “LIGHTITUDE” and it’s all about lighting the Polar regions.

What role can lighting elements play when the sun never sets or when it stays below the horizon throughout the day? That’s up to you to find out.

Reflect on Lighting the Communities Near the Polar Circle

This year’s theme invites participants to reflect on lighting the communities near the Polar Circle, through the contest theme: “LIGHTITUDE”.

Due to their high latitude these communities are subjected to particular lighting phenomena. Since light is an essential part of every living organism, it or its lack thereof has a profound effect on humankind. Can these isolated communities benefit from a more adapted artificial outdoor lighting solution to satisfy their particular Nordic needs and identities?

These are some of the questions that the CLU foundation members invite the participants from all walks of life to reflect and create upon.

Registration to the 2012 CLU foundation contest is free and deadline for contest inscription is: 2 September 2012, 23:59 (GMT-5).

Three prizes will be distributed as follow:

  • 1st Prize: 2500 $CAD or a 12 weeks training course with the industrial design and engineering teams of Philips Lumec;
  • 2nd Prize: 1500 $CAD;
  • 3rd Prize: 1000 $CAD.
