Only luminaires, light sources, and lighting products that have been released after May 2019 will be considered for publication.

Entering the AL 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.

You will receive an emailed payment receipt and email confirmation, which will direct you to log back into the site to begin Step 2. If you are entering more than one product, you will have to register each product individually, but you will be able to copy your registration information over (click Copy Application or Make Another Submission before you check out the cart). You can also add a submission at a later time; use the same login credentials to receive the discounted rate for registering multiple products.
  • Step 2: Submit Product Information and Images. 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 includes press releases and performance specifications. Do not send full catalogs. You can save and edit your submissions until you hit the Save and Finalize button.
