The Prix Lumières Awards are an honorific distinction that highlights the actions, achievements and inspiring careers of our graduates who embody the mission and values of INRS, in addition to contributing to the influence and development of their alma mater.
Created by the INRS Foundation, the awards were presented for the first time at the 2020 convocation. To date, ten INRS alumni have been honoured in our three categories: Firestarter, Trailblazer, and Starburst. The year 2023 marks the fourth edition of the competition.

- Trailblazer Award • Prix Éclat: Celebrates alumni who have distinguished themselves by their exceptional career path and their commitment to their community, both in Quebec and elsewhere in the world.
- Starburst Award • Prix Rayonnement: Honours the exceptional commitment of an alum to the development and contribution of INRS to the economic, social or cultural development of Quebec.
