The Open Call 2023 is now open! With the theme ‘Rewilding’ the festival encourages artists, talents and photographers to think ‘wildly’ and set photography free. The winners of the call wins a solo exhibition during next year’s festival in June. Deadline for submission is 1 November.

The Open Call

The open call is for artists and photographers who want to break new ground and challenge the idea of what photography is and can be, now and in the future. The winners of the open call will get the opportunity to present a solo exhibition at Copenhagen Photo Festival 2023.

We put great focus on architectural and spatial considerations when we design the specific exhibition in co-creation with the artists. Led by our principle of sustainability, we strive to find creative ways to use both our indoor exhibition venue Frame, as well as its surrounding nature in the exhibition park as platforms for our exhibition design.

Copenhagen Photo Festival solo exhibitions aim to expand the boundaries of exhibiting photography and focus on sustainable development, not least in relation to the specific place the festival is situated, but also with regards to the materiality of displaying photography, as well as presenting new perspectives and emerging talents.
