40 Under 40

The 40under40 class of 2019 were named on the 16 May 2019, and now entries are open in search of the next generation of young lighting designers.

The annual global 40under40 programme identifies the most talented and promising individuals working in the lighting design industry. Nominees will be viewed by our selectors compiling of senior lighting professionals, association representatives, educators and section editors and curatorial board members from Lighting magazine. The selectors will convene in March 2020 and debate the merits of the candidates, weighing their achievements until they find forty candidates for the year.

N.B. it is important to note that for nominees to be reviewed by the selectors, they will need to accept their nomination. For more information, please click here.
