2019 marks the 25th year of the SLL Young Lighter competition. Over the year’s we have seen some incredible projects and notable winners, making this competition an invaluable platform to explore and discuss ideas relating to light, particularly for those at the early stages of their career.

For Stage Two of the competition, the shortlisted entrants are invited to elaborate on their initial ideas outlined in Stage One. This will include a 3-5 minutes piece to camera and a developed presentation or written paper. The judges are also happy to discuss alternative formats, should this be more fitting for the idea or project in question. 

Following this, four finalists will be selected to deliver a presentation at Lux Live on 14 November 2019, with the winner to be announced at the Lux Awards that evening.
