The "2nd OLED Lighting Design Competition" will be held by ETRI (Electronics Telecommunications Research Institute) as part of an effort to accelerate the commercialization of the OLED lighting industry through 'LED lighting technology' and 'design'.
An OLED light is famous for energy-saving, being environmentally friendly, as well as thin, light-weight, transparent and bendable. It is considered as the leader of the next generation for green growth in the lighting industry
The OLED lighting market is in the early stages for now and the market is expected to form a 6 trillion market by 2015. Therefore companies from Europe, America and Japan rushed at announcing their commercialization plans.
In contrast, e thOLED light industry of Korea is still at the beginning despite having the no. 1 OLED display production infrastructure in the world.
However, with this event, the technology ensures the infrastructure along with design, so the OLED lighting industry is expected to be able to join the leader group.
An official from ETRI said "We expect that the OLED Design Contest will contribute to early commercialization and distribution by raising awareness of the people."
Winners will be awarded a Grand prize along with prize money from the Ministry of Knowledge Economy. The registration period is from 7.20 (Tue.) to 2010. 7. 30 (Fri) Online registration is available on http://www.oleddesign.com
