Lucite International Inc. is excited to make a call for entries to its 2015 LuciteLux® JUST IMAGINE Awards programme in North America. The third annual JUST IMAGINE Awards were unveiled at GlobalShop, the international exhibition aimed at the retail and hospitality industry, which took place in Las Vegas, USA from March 24-26.

The JUST IMAGINE Awards celebrate the work of designers who turn their creative vision into reality using our LuciteLux® acrylic brand. We are also delighted to announce the prestigious panel of expert judges who will select the 2015 winner:

• Alexis Bittar, CEO, Creative Designer of the eponymous jewellery company
• Aaron R. Thomas, designer, fabricator, artist and acrylic craftsman
• Anne-Louise Ewen, fine artist and painter/sculptor specialising in LuciteLux®
• Jason Kelly Johnson and Nataly Gattegno, architects and founders of Future Cities Lab
• Ron Labaco, Marcia Docter Curator for the Museum of Arts & Design
• Chris Robinson, Business Manager, Lucite International Inc.

Alexis Bittar joins the panel for the first time in 2015. His sculptural jewellery is worn by the likes of Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga, however, his love affair with LuciteLux® acrylic transcends his growing global jewellery empire. “I believe LuciteLux® offers endless creative possibilities; I’ve been working with the material for a quarter century and am still finding new ways to manipulate it,” said Bittar. “I look forward to judging this year’s entries so I can see how other designers imagine LuciteLux®.”

Lucite International will celebrate the winner with a full-page spread in Architectural Record as well as a making-of documentary that tells the story of the designer’s work with LuciteLux®.

Designers from all industries including: architects, fabricators, fine artists, visual merchandising, furniture designers, interiors, sign designers, commercial artists, fashion designers as well as design students are encouraged to enter their work made from genuine LuciteLux® acrylic and completed between 2013 and 2015. Entries are accepted from March 24, 2015 to September 15, 2015. Entering, as well as to find out more, is easy via  http://lucitelux.com/just-imagine-awards/
