Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition

2016 Outdoor Competition Winners

The 2016 Outdoor NGL Competition focused on pedestrian-scale luminaires (both pole-mounted and bollards); garage luminaires; and typical roadway, parking-lot, and wall-pack products. Integrated sensors were evaluated for the garage luminaires; simple dimming control was required for most other categories. Winners include 9 luminaires that were "Recognized", with 2 singled out as "Outstanding". The 2016 outdoor competition included sports lighting for the first time. The two NGL sports luminaires evaluated were considered Notable.

The judging panel selected the luminaires on the basis of color, illuminance, glare control, light distribution, serviceability, value, and appearance.

The judging session was conducted at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in Blacksburg, Virginia in March 2016, and the awards event took place during LIGHTFAIR International on April 26, 2016.
