The International Lighting Design Awards are open to both concept stage and realized projects and products, which were designed in the last 10 years. For lighting projects, the following will be considered during evaluation of the entries: function and performance; compatibility with architecture; correct use of lighting products, effective use of lighting theory and techniques; choice of color, form and texture; energy efficiency and economic factors. Special recognition will also be given to projects that are classified as "green".

Lighting products will be considered for safety, ergonomics, function, performance, energy use and visual aesthetics.
