1 - a recognition to the best independent lighting designers and professionals’ realizations or installations in Contract applications.
2 - a recognition to the best LED solutions/systems and luminaires.

Both recognitions underline the innovative dimension of lighting design where there must be originality, creativity, but also technological research, development of customized solutions and positive results in terms of energy efficiency and human well-being.

The Jury of the Codega Prize is composed by qualified experts of lighting and electronics sectors:

  • Massimo Malaguti – Director of Univeneto
  • Domenico Caserta – President of Assodel
  • Paola Urbano – Lighting Designer, Co-founder of APIL and Member of its Board

  • Francesco Iannone – Lighting Designer
  • Gary Kibblewhite – Past president of IDEA

Apart from the official categories, there will be a special recognition – with a photographic and video contest – to “the best lighting effect”. This special prize will be assigned through a public vote made by LedLab Facebook Community to the best effects/results realized through a creative use of light and of new technologies.

The Codega Prize ceremony will take place on Friday 9th October 2015 in Padua/Venice, following the conference dedicated to lighting design that will be held at ILLUMINOTRONICA – the Italian event devoted to LED lighting that will take place from 8th to 10th October (
