Adam Glatherine and David Battersby. Location: Fountains Abbey. "The particular way light will be used on the east façade is intended bring out even older historical aspects of the abbey and tie them together with the contemporary values of the International Year of Light (IYL) 2015."

Jim Patton of Light and Design. Location: Giant's Causeway. Patton worked with the National Trust, which opened the visitor centre and cafe on the night as hundreds of visitors turned out to see the show. "This challenging site has no mains supply and the plan at present is to have a mix of battery powered LED fittings and some more powerful generator powered LED floods at remote locations."

Michael Grubb of Michael Grubb Studio. Location: Durdle Door. "Our concept is to create a scene that is reminiscent of an impressionist painting by placing a person in a rowing boat under the iconic arch. We will then use a variety of lighting tricks, from a boat, to fill the arch with reflected light. Additional lighting from the shore will provide warmth to the landscape." Photograph by Mike Massaro

Andrew Bissell head of lighting design group Cundall Light4. Locations: Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City. "With so much to light in the area we really had to reign ourselves in. We settled on the idea of lighting the inside of one of the graving docks. We like the idea that the effect will not be seen until you arrive at or walk past the graving dock."

Malcolm Innes. Location: Edinburgh Old and New Town. "The site seemed like an easy choice as we are already working on a research project with Edinburgh World Heritage Trust to explore innovative new ways to use community co-design to re-light the Closes (narrow pedestrian vennels or alleyways) that lead of Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile."

Ben Porter of Hoare Lea Lighting. Location: Blaenavon Ironworks. “It wasn’t until we started to look at the Blaenavon Ironworks we realised just how much the site helped to shape not only the local area, but actually how it had an impact on the rest of the world. It’s been really interesting to research and we hope to do it justice on the night.” Photograph by Kenton Simons
