Mission

The CLUE (Community Lighting for the Urban Environment) competition expects to further position itself inside the larger community of lighting professionals and continue on the route of being an internationally recognized leader in the design community. Therefore, CLUE has set itself the goal of encouraging and challenging young designers such as students (University & Colleges) and emerging Professionals (<5 years in their profession) to develop innovative lighting concepts for interior and exterior spaces, stimulate challenging ideas and recognize individuals creating those ideas.
