DEADLINE: FEB. 16, 2018

ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING and ARCHITECT magazines invite you to submit new products for editorial consideration. Selected products will appear on archlighting.com, on architectmagazine.com, and in ARCHITECT’s April 2018 issue, which will be distributed at Lightfair and other industry trade shows. Luminaires, light sources, and lighting products that have been released after June 2017 will be considered for publication. All submissions will also be considered for potential product coverage by all of Hanley Wood’s brands.


Entering the AL + AR Product Call is a two-step process. We recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox as your internet browser. Submissions via email will not be accepted.

  • Step 1: Registration and Payment. Click here to create an account and begin your entry. Complete the short online registration form and pay for your entries. This form cannot be revised once submitted. You will receive an emailed payment receipt and email confirmation, which will direct you to log back into the site to begin Step 2.
  • Step 2: Submission Materials. After you have registered your product and paid the applicable fee, you will be asked to log back into the site and submit product information and marketing assets. Product information may include detailed press releases and technical and performance specifications. Do not send full catalogs. You can save, edit, log out, and log into your submissions until you save and finalize your submission.

  1. Completed registration form with entrant’s contact information.

Label the digital image files using the following format: Manufacturer_ProductName_ ##, with ## representing the sequential number of the image uploaded.
