The People’s Choice Award

The People's Choice Award

Introducing a New IES Omaha Section Award Category

Do you have a project that was completed after January 1st 2023 but you were just not able to submit for the 2024 IES Illumination Awards program?  Fear not! 

New for this year, the IES Omaha Section is announcing “The People’s Choice Award”.  We want to show off your projects on our Section LinkedIn page, and we want to make it easier for you to receive awards for those projects that are just too small to submit a full Illumination Award.

If you have a project with exceptional lighting, submit your best photo and we will feature it on LinkedIn. Photos can be impromptu or professionally taken and can be of spaces, details, mockups, construction progress, or anything you feel is worth submitting! 

Projects can be submitted until the end of August. In early September all submissions will be judged by our local section awards judges and narrowed down to the top candidates.

We also want to make this an interactive award, giving the entire section the ability to choose the winner. We will post a live voting link with the top projects selected by the judges to our Section LinkedIn page. Voting will then be open until the day of the Section Awards, where we will announce the winner at the end of the program.

We can’t wait to see all your submissions!
