OPPORTUNITIES
Dear Students and Faculty,
As you consider your activities over the winter break, we bring to your attention several opportunities to enter competitions and the like. Some of these may mean simply revising your projects a slight amount to meet the requirements, but well worth the effort! Just a reminder that these opportunities, as well as internship and job opportunities are found on our IAPD website.
SOURCE AWARD LIGHTING COMPETITION
$1500 FIRST PLACE; DEADLINE TO ENTER:  JAN 20, 2016
The SOURCE Awards competition is open to all lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers and consultants who use Eaton's lighting fixtures  in an interior or exterior design project.  Students currently enrolled in any of these disciplines are also eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs that utilize Eaton's lighting fixures;  Student entries are judged in a separate student category.  The competition seeks a creative use of fixtures providing energy-efficient design solutions in addition to standard projects.  More here.
