Why enter?

The winners will be announced in January next year during a webinar hosted by arc magazine. An overal winner will be selected and details of the winning project will be published in an arc magazine article. 

All entrants will receive publicity on the DALI Alliance website. In some cases, we will work with entrants to create Case Studies for the website - see below for a recent example of a Case Study.

 


Entry criteria

► All types of architectural and commercial lighting projects linked with DALI technology can be nominated. There are different categories for indoor and outdoor lighting. We welcome projects in all geographical regions.

► Projects do not have to use exclusively DALI. Entries should explain how DALI combines with other technologies, where appropriate. Materials should explain why DALI was chosen, and the benefits attained.

► There is no cost to enter.

► Any organization can submit an entry, and there is no requirement for DALI Alliance membership. Multiple entries by the same organization are permitted. Entries should provide the names/roles of all parties involved with the project, including suppliers of DALI products.

► Eligible projects will have been completed between January 2019 and November 2020. Partially completed and ongoing projects will be considered, provided that images and tangible results are already available. Projects completed before January 2019 will not be considered.

► Judges reserve the right to move entries into different categories where there is a better chance of the project being short-listed.

► Images should be available for use, without copyright restrictions. By entering you agree to publication of images and project information for promotional purposes relating to these Awards, and also on the DiiA website. Selected projects will be described in detail on our website - see below for a Case Study example.

Formerly design director at design studio, Light Bureau, Tad now runs his own independent lighting design practice, and is a lecturer on the Masters course in Light and Lighting at London’s Bartlett School. A self-confessed lighting control geek, he's very familiar with the deployment of DALI-based technologies.

As a leading international authority on DALI lighting control and related specifications, he has been invited to speak at numerous events around the globe. On behalf of DiiA, Scott developed and implemented the DALI-2 certification program, which was subsequently extended to include the D4i specifications.

Featured DALI Project

Old Admiralty Building, London

The installation of a DALI lighting-control system was a fundamental aspect of a major refurbishment project at the Old Admiralty Building. Almost 7,000 DALI-addressable luminaires are controlled and monitored by the CP system. The company also supplied 1,800 PIR devices within the refurbishment to detect occupancy in different parts of the building and activate lighting accordingly.
