Artist – How to be a part of the festival
Open Call for Copenhagen Light Festival
Open Call is open and the deadline for submissions is 5th. june 23.59 danish time.
If you have a light piece, a light installation or a light experience that you want to be a part of Copenhagen Light Festival, you can submit it to our Open Call.
Together, we want to enrich the streets of Copenhagen with artistic initiatives and shining experiences, which will temporarily transform the architecture, squares, back alleys and secret places of the city in both unique and spectacular ways.
Your work will become a part of Copenhagen Light Festival’s official programme, featured in Danish and international media and shown to the citizens of Copenhagen and visitors from Denmark and abroad.
What kinds of works are we looking for?
A light installation could be a separate illuminated object outside, or it could be light sources illuminating an existing building or square. A light installation can also be a light-based interaction or a projection that changes the surroundings. All pieces must be viewable from a distance and give the observer a clear and impactful experience. It is especially important to control the light intensity and scale carefully, so the audience will get the full impact of the experience. Please take into consideration that the February weather in Copenhagen may be cold and rainy. Consequently, the light installations must not only be aesthetically interesting, but also be able to resist rain, frost, strong winds and curious audience members.
