As to be expected for a competition celebrating the beauty of the natural world, key characteristics of LED Light Sheet illuminated frames, such as its low power consumption and longevity, were valued by the museum.
Grant Reid of the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year project team, explained: 'In addition a saving in power consumption and the LED strips lifecycle, lasting approximately 50,000 hours, we also achieved a panel that complimented the overall lightness of the exhibition design and the magnificent photographs to dramatic effect.'
LED Light Sheet was placed behind a digital print of each winning image ensuring full illumination was achieved by the high brightness LEDs embedded within the unit. The exhibition system was designed by Universal Design Studio with Applelec creating the frames used throughout the installation.
Applelec Managing Director, Ian Drinkwater, commented: "The success of this project has been a rewarding contract for the company and we were thrilled to see our illuminated frames used to enhance the already spectacular images in this renowned competition"
The LED Light Sheet display system ensures these inspiring photographs are exhibited with maximum impact.
