Who are the winners at the IESANZ Awards?

The 2015 International IESANZ Lighting Design Awards have rewarded the best projects and design excellence across Australia and New Zealand.

The Awards were held on Friday 13 November at the glittering Queensland Chapter Gala Dinner, hosted by Chapter president Darren Schreier and professional MC Shane Bourne.

The Illuminating Engineering Society of Australia and New Zealand is an organisation comprising six Chapters which are located in the Australian States (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia) and New Zealand.

“I’d like to congratulations each of the winning teams on the recognition of your design excellence,” said Adele Locke, president IESANZ. “My thanks to the judges for their diligence in evaluating these projects and also to the Queensland Chapter of IESANZ for hosting the International Awards event as part of their own Chapter Awards.”
