D.E. Frost Award

D.E. Frost was the first President of the Calgary Section of the IES. This award bears his name to commemorate the interconnection between the achievement of exceptional lighting design and dedication to the lighting industry.

Every year, the IES Calgary Section Awards Committee reviews the Illumination Awards entries by our section and selects the winner of the D.E. Frost Award for Excellence in Lighting. The award is presented at the Annual IES Calgary Section Celebration.
