Did you know that over 1.3 billion people in the world live without any access to electricity? It’s astonishing facts such as these that have spurred Panasonic to launch a project to start bringing light to dark places by donating solar lanterns to replace dangerous kerosene lamps. Now Panasonic is launching Cut Out The Darkness, a competition that asks the public to donate their own designs for solar lantern shades. Artists involved in the project so far include skilled paper-cutters Anna Howarth, Bovey Lee, Sarah Dennis and Julene Harrison among others.
