Now in its seventh year, the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards annually recognizes the contributions of the LED and solid-state lighting (SSL) supply chain in producing high-performance, quality engineered components and systems into the commercial distribution stream. Each year, a team composed of LEDs Magazine staff, Strategies in Light advisory board members, and other colleagues collaborate to deliver an awards program that culminates in acknowledging the finest innovations in SSL technology. The Sapphire Awards celebrates the innovation, vision, and leaders driving the industry forward. 


NEW IN 2021! Strategies in Light is pleased to announce our collaboration with the Lighting Controls Association (LCA), a council of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), for the 2021 Sapphire Awards. Through this collaboration, the Sapphire Awards has announced the addition of Design Excellence Awards, sponsored by the Lighting Controls Association. These awards will recognize excellence in design projects that use networked lighting controls/connected lighting. 

Thank you to our 2020 Sapphire Awards Sponsors:
