Derby Cathedral has been named in a prestigious list of locations shortlisted for the 2016 Lighting Design Awards.

Other buildings to make the shortlist include the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australia, the Sayner Huette Foundry in Bendorf, Germany and the Saraye Ameriha Boutique Hotel in Kashan, Iran.

The Cathedral has been shortlisted for the Heritage Project of the Year category which covers period buildings, churches and places of worship. Previous winners of the award include Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge and King’s Cross Square, London.

The international awards, now celebrating their 40th year, will be decided by a panel of professionals from around the globe including New York-based lighting and design pioneer Howard Brandston as head judge, Professor Margaret Petty, head of the School of Design at Victoria University, New Zealand and Professor Richard Weston, chair of Architecture at Cardiff University.

A spokesperson from the Lighting Design Awards organisers said: “Winning is the ultimate accolade of achievement.”

The awards ceremony takes place on Thursday 5th May at the London Hilton Park Lane.
