The Lighting Police launches online campaign

11th May 2023

(Worldwide) – The Lighting Police, alongside light research centre Ciluz, has launched an online campaign to coincide with the International Day of Light on 16 May.

Entitled Say it with Light, the social media campaign will seek to bring a strong message to the whole world, while celebrating the International Day of Light.

The global community is invited to play a creative part in this initiative, which seeks to raise awareness about the importance of adequate light in our lives and the spaces that surround us.

The Lighting Police is an education-driven platform supported by a global multidisciplinary network with the goal of raising awareness, sparking transparent conversations, and speaking to the public about the importance of the “right” light. TLP has endorsed the mission that each person, no matter who they are, can understand, detect, and experience the value of the correct, designed, and considered the quality of light.

For its part, Ciluz is a Light Research Centre that seeks to raise awareness and promote actions on the role of light in the quality of life and wellbeing. This organisation fulfils its mission through the generation of content and educational instances, reaching a large community in Latin America made up of professionals, lovers, and curious about light.

To participate in the Say It With Light Challenge consists of three steps:

1. Choose a local landmark or building, think of it as a canvas, and project a light message, whether in the form of colours, patterns, or simple text. Thinking of light as a messenger to the world, what would you like to convey?

2. Share the message as a sketch; an image, a gif, or a text. Be simple but creative and quick using Instagram drawing/painting tools like a collage (not programmes like Photoshop or Canva).

3. Upload the story, nominate two friends to take up the challenge, and tag @_ciluz and @thelightingpolice with the hashtags #diloconluz #sayitwithlight

Participants will be able to share their creations on Instagram, Linkedin, or via email from the 16th of May until the end of the month.
