The current era that we live in is an era of spreading information and exploding creativity, and a new wave of creating has been pushed strongly by the rapid expansion of mass media, which gives everyone a chance--as long as you have an idea and use whatever you have to create, you may become a great creator, to adorn this era.

In recent years, NANLITE & NANLUX, the two brothers/sub-brands under NANGUANG, have won recognition from both working professionals within the industry and end users' communities through their passion for lighting and achievements on products. And as brands that are always trying to be reliable partners to users, we want to further expand this spirit, offer support to creators and storytellers, and provide a place for them to show their talent.

What is the Project Spark

Project Spark, is a global campaign announced by NANLITE & NANLUX, together with four sponsors of ATOMOS, RODE, DZOFILM and ARTLIST, covering four categories of narrative, documentary, commercial and experimental. Project Spark is an invitation to creators, is a competition-calling campaign for all creators around the world. Those outstanding ones within each category will be rewarded with bonuses and prizes provided by NANLITE, NANLUX and four sponsors.

Theme for Calling - Reflection

Light always originates from somewhere but has nowhere to terminate. Different surfaces in nature could reflect the same light into different results - soft, hard, focus and spread, etc. Surfaces in the heart and mind could sometimes reflect emotion and soul, even memory and reality. The surface could be defined by you, and what will be the reflection of your surface? The Spark is here, it brings the light, and your reflection will be the answer.
