Casambi Awards 2022

Are you passionate about lighting and would like to get visibility for your project or product? Submit your nomination for the 2021 Casambi Awards! 

We are pleased to announce that the Casambi Awards are now open for entries and because we have seen so many intelligent and creative ways to use Casambi technology, we have introduced a new category this year. So, in addition to the best project, we are looking for the winning product.

The number one entry criterion is that you are passionate about lighting. It really doesn’t matter if you are a manufacturer, electrical consultant, architect, lighting designer, commissioning engineer, or influencer, we are eagerly awaiting your entry and want to hear all about it – and so do our very influential jury of lighting industry legends (listed below).

In addition to promoting your product or project to Casambi’s extensive follower base, the winners will also get a featured article in arc magazine, one of the lighting industry’s most well-known publications.  

What type of project can be nominated? 
You are free to nominate any types of architectural lighting projects that include Casambi technology, and it can be as many different projects as you like. The project has to be at least in the final installation phase, if not completed, and there are no restrictions on the project’s location. You can also nominate projects as a group. 

What type of product can be nominated? 
You can nominate any product that includes Casambi technology. It doesn’t matter if the product is a switch, driver, sensor, luminaire, or even a coffee maker! As long as your product uses Casambi technology, we are happy to see it. 

Winners will be announced mid-March 2022. 

Entering is completely free of charge, and we are accepting entries until the 1st of February 2022. The sooner you submit your entry, the more visibility it will get, so don’t delay!
