IALD Awards Embrace In-Person Format Once Again

The 2024 IALD Awards will cap events at EA24 this October


The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) invites the entire lighting design industry to join us on Saturday, 19 October, as hundreds gather at the Rancho Bernardo Inn to celebrate the year's outstanding achievements and innovations in lighting design from around the globe.

Made possible by title sponsor Acuity Brands, the 41st IALD International Lighting Design Awards presentation is an unforgettable event and an invaluable opportunity for networking, inspiration, and recognition within the lighting design community. Join us as we honor the remarkable projects and talented individuals who continue to push the boundaries of lighting design excellence.

Can't make it to San Diego? Those unable to attend the festivities in person during EA24 will still have opportunities to celebrate alongside their peers. Building on the success of last year's events, many IALD Regions and Chapters will be hosting "watch parties" in cities worldwide. 

In addition, a broadcast of the year's winning projects will stream simultaneously with the Enlighten live event on the IALD's social media channels.

Want to be on stage to accept?
