SHADE International Lighting Design Competition

STUFF (Studio for Transformative Urban Forms and Fields) invites industrials designers around the world to enter a new international lighting design competition called SHADE.

SHADE is a competition open to all ages and backgrounds and the challenge is to design and make a light shade prototype for a pendant light that is creative and innovative in its articulation of light, material, and space.

The objective of the competition is to:

  • encourage design through making — all entries must be constructed;
  • to celebrate and acknowledge innovative ideas and talents — no background or experience is needed and
  • to disseminate design into the everyday environment — public consumption/acknowledgement is an integral part of the competition.

The competition will involve three stages: selection by jury, public exhibition, and sale.

A team of international jurors will select a set of winning entries (up to 30) based on their merits. The selected entries will then be invited for an exhibition during the month of September/October at MAKE / Coffee and Stuff (751 Corydon Avenue, Winnipeg, Canada) for public viewing and experience.

Registration Fee

The registration fee is $10 (Canadian Dollars).
