Peachtree City, Ga.-based Cooper Lighting, a division of Cooper Industries, Ltd., Houston, recently announced a call for entries for its 33rd Annual SOURCE Awards national lighting design competition. The competition, which focuses on furthering the understanding, knowledge, and function of lighting as a primary element in design, is open to all lighting designers, architects, engineers, professional designers, and consultants who use Cooper Lighting fixtures in an interior or exterior design project. Students currently enrolled in any of these disciplines are also eligible to enter projects based on conceptual lighting designs using Cooper Lighting fixtures, and are judged in a separate student category. This year’s competition will also seek a creative use of fixtures providing energy-efficient design solutions in addition to standard projects.

Judging for the 33rd Annual SOURCE Awards competition will take place February 2010, by a professional, independent panel of lighting and design professionals as well as a representative of the SOURCE, Cooper Lighting’s premier lighting education center. Entries must be postmarked on or before January 29, 2010. To download a complete list of rules, visit the Cooper Lighting Web site or e-mail
