Amsterdam Light Festival is an annual light art festival in the Netherlands that presents the rapidly developing concept of light art in all its forms. After five successful editions, the festival will return to Amsterdam’s city center for the 2017-2018 edition. From artists to designers, engineers to architects, and professionals to students, the festival invites creators from around the world to submit their creative interpretations of the theme EXISTENTIAL. The deadline for submissions round 1 (curatorial selection) is 31 January 2017, 11:00 CET.

Amsterdam Light Festival presents two exhibitions, following two routes in Amsterdam’s city center, each with its own unique interpretation of the festival’s theme.

Water Colors boat route
Amsterdam Light Festival champions artworks that connect the essential elements of light and people’s EXISTENTIAL needs and dreams, making people more aware of their existential being. For the Water Colors boat route, we are looking for monumental proposals on, above or in the water that connect with the city, its inhabitants, and its visitors.

Illuminade walking route
For the Illuminade walking route, we hope to see beautiful interpretations and installations that bring the EXISTENTIAL qualities of light back to the basics and provide a stage for natural miracles and occurrences. We are looking for artworks that you can touch, walk through, connect with and react to.
