Lighting design award closes soon
The 2009 IALD International Lighting Design Awards submission deadline is Nov. 17, 2008.
The oldest architectural lighting design award program on the global stage, the IALD International Lighting Design Awards , showcases the evolution of excellence in design. Each year, entries are judged by leaders in the industry who recognize noteworthy projects that reach new heights, move beyond the ordinary, and represent excellence in both aesthetic and technical design achievement. Entries are due Nov. 17, 2008.
Winning an IALD Award is universally heralded as a top distinction in the architectural lighting design community, and IALD International Lighting Design Award winners are featured prominently in numerous industry-related publications across the globe each year, expanding name recognition, demand, and international reach.
You can enter your best in the categories of:
*Monumental structures/public spaces
Projects will be considered on their own merit, not judged against one another. There is no minimum or maximum number of awards granted. Awards of Excellence and Merit are based on the points earned for both technical and aesthetic design achievement. Recognition in the form of a Special Citation may be given for a particularly innovate aspect of a project's lighting design at the discretion of the judges.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
