Amazing images already entered to Lovers of Light competition. See below to enter yours... 

VELUX, manufacturers of roof windows and champions of natural lighting, are welcoming entries to their Lovers of Light photography competition for the second year running. The daylight experts launched the competition to highlight the power of sunlight and celebrate the benefits of natural light.

Following the immense success of last year’s competition - which received a staggering 9,000 entries - VELUX has issued the contest for a second time, challenging entrants to submit photographs that creatively interpret daylight in any form. This can be through a window, from a balcony, through a forest, across the sea… The possibilities are endless.

In return, one lucky winner will receive a 5 night stay for two people at the Isfjord Hotel on the Nordenskiold Coast in Svalbard, Norway. During the summer months this region experiences sunlight 24 hours a day so the winner will be able to enjoy daylight around the clock. This year’s competition also includes a mobile phone category with a Lytro camera up for grabs.

One of the esteemed judges, Tom Dyckhoff said:  "The role of daylight in design, art, science and architecture is absolutely crucial.  But rarely do we stop and think about how it impacts our daily lives - everything from our health and well-being to our mood and sleep patterns.  

“The VELUX Lovers of Light photography competition aims to celebrate daylight and hopefully inspire people to stop and appreciate one of our most precious natural resources.  I am looking forward to being part of the judging panel and along with the other judges seeing this year's entrants' creative interpretations of daylight."
