Open Call For Participation in the Fourth International Competition of Video Art and Video Mapping within Saint-Petersburg International Festival Of Light Art "Light Nights" In Gatchina in 2022
The theme of the whole festival in 2022 is a DIALOGUE. This is the most important thing right now — only the dialogue will allow us to maintain humanitarian ties. Only the dialogue can save us as homo sapiens.

International communications in culture are crucially important for Russians now. It could help us to keep some threads of positive interaction. So we will be glad If you come to the decision to participate in our festival.

In previous times the "Light Nights" Festival had an international competition with two nominations: light installations and video mapping. Obviously, in the current circumstances it is almost unrealistic to bring any art objects. Logistics rules are changing unpredictably. But there is still the option of video content. We invite you to create some videos — we have some architectural screens for video mapping: a large Iordanian facade of the Gatchina Palace and a tiny facade of the Venus Pavilion. We can also build some constructions for broadcasting video content if necessary.

You can know more about this facades:
Your applications will be evaluated by the Jury, and the curator will work with those who entered the long list. The curator may help you in the creative process at all stages if you need.

The contestants' works will be shown on August 25, 26 and 27 in Gatchina Park.
We accept applications until May 25
