The National Lighting Bureau (NLB) announces a call for entries for the 2022 NLB Tesla Awards.
Staying true to its mission, the NLB created the Tesla Awards to honor lighting projects that provide High-Benefit Lighting, or lighting that promotes human performance, health and wellness, safety and security, commerce, and the reduction in light pollution. Not only do the winning projects showcase the value of lighting, but they also demonstrate the best practices in lighting design, and the importance of collaboration.
The Tesla Awards program is open to new construction or retrofit lighting projects for all types of indoor and outdoor applications; anyone may enter a project. Lighting design and implementation teams may include lighting designers, manufacturers, agents, distributors, facility managers or engineers, building owners and occupants, and researchers. Judging criteria are use of state-of-the-art lighting and controls, application innovation through needs assessment and project team coordination, documentation to validate enhanced “value of lighting” claims, level of difficulty, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability.
This year, in collaboration with the Mount Sinai Light and Health Research Center, the NLB is proud to announce a Special Award Category – Lighting Design to Promote Human Health and Well-being. This award, to be judged by the LHRC, will only consider those designs where the electric lighting supports circadian entrainment.

There are no fees for entry. Projects should have been installed within the 2020 and 2021 calendar years. Submissions should be completed via the designated online submittal processes by March 28, 2022. Winning projects will be recognized during LightFair 2022 in Las Vegas and will receive additional publicity in press releases, and industry newsletters and websites.
