Students participating in the 2019 Illuminating Engineering Society's New York City Section's (IESNYC) annual student competition will display their competition entries on Tuesday March 5, during the program’s annual evening event. The 2019 competition theme is “Light & Culture” and challenges students to construct a three-dimensional study that explores the role of light in rituals, events, or rites of passage. This year the program will take place at 4W43, located at 4 West 43rd Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Student work is on display starting 6:00 p.m. followed by the announcement of winners and a keynote talk at 8:00 p.m. by Nathalie Rozot, a New York-based designer who works across the design disciplines, including lighting. She founded the lighting think tank PhoScope in 2011. The event is free, but registration is required.
