International Dedolight Lighting Competition

Finally the decisions of our international jury have all been put together, and the list of winners is being worked upon, and each of you who won a price will be notified in the next few days.

Thank you for your patience.

There have been many unfortunate delays, mostly due to the current pandemic and the fact that many of the jury were in lockdown situation.
But it allowed us to include some of the late entries.

Thank you very much for your patience. The results are quite remarkable, and we will publish them on our channels and possibly put a potpourri together of the winning entries.

For all of those who did not win, we thank you for your participation, and we will still try and see which of your videos we will publicize or like to.


Dear Friend, dear Agent and Distributor,

We are challenging everybody, be it professionals, be it students, teachers or beginners, to participate in this competition.

The aim of this competition is to further our deep dedication to the educational approach – LET US LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.

When we had our first competition about 4 years ago we received more than 250 entries from all over the world.
Most of those were absolutely amazing and ingenious in their creativity, their mood and most of them also regarding the educational value.

In the following we will describe in detail what the competition is all about and what can and should be considered, what steps to take, for you, the distributor, the supporter, the friend, who will help to organize this.

We will also add some first ideas how you can introduce this to your clients and friends, to film and media schools, to photographic institutions – pretty much anybody who feels the urge to share his creativity and feels that he has something to tell to others, striving to make better images.

You can see some brief collection of some results of the first international competition, and you can also view all the ones that won the 30 prizes, and all the ones that also participated, many of them with incredibly creative and esthetic approaches.


Possible introduction to your clients, media and film schools, photographic schools and any other individuals

The main driving force behind this competition is my personal commitment to the educational approach.

I grew up in a country where, at that time, there was not a single film school, but I found wonderful, very capable and patient teachers whom I owe a lot. This is the reason why I want to pass on what I have learnt, hopefully creating something like a chain reaction where all of us can benefit from the experience, the creativity and the ingenuity of each other.

There are many different aspects of lighting. You can find light, you can create light in many different ways; there are many specialties in an endless variety.
