enLIGHTen: IES International Year of Light Photo Contest 2015
In celebration of 2015 as the International Year of Light as proclaimed by UNESCO, the Emerging Professionals of IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) are giving you a reason to share your love for lighting for the next 6 months. Every month we will announce a “Theme of the Month” to which you will post “lighting” photos related to the chosen theme. You can post as many photos as you wish and at the end of each month, for bragging rights only, we will announce our favourite photo of the month. In August, a group of industry professional judges will select the top 3 entrants based on their photo originality, uniqueness, relevance to the theme of the month, activity and interaction with the public.

    Product Detailed Description
    Designers are encouraged to take into account both the immediate objectives and the services that might eventually be required in each facility.  For instance, areas originally lighted for one specific task in a facility may eventually serve other needs.  Building in adaptability can be more economical in the long run.

    While lighting should serve the needs of the medical staff, it should also suit patient needs for a comfortable, low-stress environment.  Illumination in multi-bed rooms should be unobtrusive to one roommate while remaining adequate for other.  And, light which enables doctors to note important color nuances must not produce glare, or overexpose the patient's retina.
