Vox Juventa is the conference for the new generation. PLDA has been organising this speakers’ competition for lighting designers under the age of 35 for six years. An independent jury selects the six best papers from numerous submissions, offering the authors a platform to present in front of an international audience of professionals at PLDC. The best speaker is awarded 1,000 euros in prize money. Speakers are required to present only cutting-edge topics and research findings. In addition to the content the jury also evaluates the speakers’ professionalism and presentation skills.
