« Panorama » is a selection of 50 projects of lighting design, inside and outside, realized in Ibero-American (Mexico, Central America, South America, Spain and Portugal). « Panorama » arose from Anne Bureau’s idea, guiding committee member of EILD to give a bigger visibility to the quality projects realized in the region, by independent agencies installed in these various countries. This initiative motivated the on-line magazine Iluminet, based in Mexico, to create the first edition of « Premios Iluminet », competition of lighting design where the prize-winners were chosen among the projects selected for « Panorama ».
A call for projects in summer was thrown via the site of EILD and Iluminet at the beginning of the year, and 135 projects, realized between 2010 and 2014, were received. At the beginning of September, a jury met to analyze and select the projects of « Panorama », as well as to indicate the prize-winners and the mentions of « Premios Iluminet ». This jury consisted of 6 members: guiding Luis Juan Lopez Barreiro of Iluminet and the lighting engineers Gustavo Aviles (Mexico City), Maurici Gines (Spain), Carmenza Henao (Colombia), Ricardo Hofstadter (Uruguay) and Anne Bureau (France).
During the evening of November 6th of EILD, 50 projects of the first « Panorama » of the Ibero-American lighting design will be presented under the playful shape of a lottery, a type Bingo, very popular game in numerous countries.
