In response to the announcement, Paul Tarricone, Editor and Publisher of LD+A commented, “LD+A is honored to be recognized by TABPI in this global awards program. Being named one of ‘The Big 95’ is a testament to the dedication and talent of our editors, art directors and contributing writers.”

“I am very pleased to see Paul and his editorial-design team receive recognition for the care they take in putting together the magazine each month. LD+A serves an important function not only for the Society, but also for the lighting community at large by providing articles about lighting design best practices and serving as a vehicle for informing readers about new lighting products, the latest technical developments, and industry trends and news. Congratulations to the LD+A team for a job well done,” said Tim Licitra, Executive Vice President of the IES.
