Festivalpraktikant // Festival Internship

👇🏼 English text below 👇🏼

Brænder du for kunst, fotografi, udstillings- og/eller festivalplanlægning? Er du nysgerrig, åben, selvstændig og struktureret? Copenhagen Photo Festival er på udkig efter praktikanter, der kan byde ind med faglighed, kreative indspark og lyst til at engagere sig i forberedelserne og afviklingen af næste års festival i juni!

Som praktikant hos os er du med til at realisere og formidle et omfattende, kulturevent i København med en lang række samarbejdspartnere på tværs af kunstscenen og et bredt udsnit af aktiviteter. Du vil få indgående erfaring med kultur- og eventproduktion fra A til Å og blive rustet til at kunne indgå i selvstændige projekter fremadrettet. Du får afprøvet og forenet din akademiske viden og uddannelsesbaggrund med opgaver i praktisk og kreativ kontekst og selvfølgelig et bredt indblik i foto- og kunstverdenen samt kulturmiljøet på både lokalt og internationalt niveau. 

Interesse for kommunikation, events eller programplanlægning?

Til foråret 2023 søger vi praktikanter med interesse inden for kommunikation, eventproduktion eller programplanlægning. Afhængig af din baggrund og faglige interesse, kan du fx komme omkring følgende arbejdsopgaver i dit praktikforløb:  

  • Contentkoordinering og -planlægning
  • Contentproduktion til web, nyhedsbreve og so-me (fx tekst, foto og videoproduktion)
  • Event- og udstillingskoordinering 
  • Programudvikling og -koordinering
  • Udstillingsproduktion 
  • Projektkorodinering

Hvad kan du forvente af os – og hvad forventer vi af dig? 

Du studerer kommunikation, medier, kunsthistorie, visuel kultur eller lignende, og du har lyst til at bringe dine kompetencer og erfaringer, synspunkter og ideer i spil i vores lille, internationale team. Hos os kan du få stor indflydelse på egne arbejdsopgaver, ligesom du kan forvente en uhøjtidelig men dedikeret tilgang til opgaverne – og alle bidrager til at søsætte festivalen sammen. Derfor har vi brug for, at du er ansvarsbevidst, struktureret og kan prioritere imellem sideløbende opgaver. Du begår dig problemfrit på dansk og engelsk, skriftligt såvel som mundtligt.  

Et praktikforløb hos os er min. 15 timer om ugen med start 1. februar og semesteret ud. Vi kan tilbyde fleksible arbejdstider i forhold til dit studie, men i perioden op til og under festivalen, må du forvente, at vi har brug for et større engagement. Vi kan desværre ikke tilbyde løn i forbindelse med praktikken.  

Send din ansøgning (og cv), hvor du uddyber hvilke praktikopgaver, der interesserer dig mest, hvorfor, og hvordan du vil gribe dem an. Deadline 21. November kl. 12 til info@copenhagenphotofestival.com

Vi glæder os til at høre fra dig!

Internship

Copenhagen Photo Festival is looking for interns who can offer creative input, professionalism and who loves to get involved!

As an intern with us, you will have a share in the realization of a widespread cultural event in Copenhagen with a large number of partners and a wide range of activities. You will gain in-depth experience with event production from A to Z and be equipped to be able to take part in independent projects in the future. 

Interested in communications, content production, event or exhibition planing?

You can test your academic knowledge and educational background with assignments in a practical and creative context –  and of course a broad insight into the world of photography and art. Here are some of the tasks you can explore during your internship:  

  • Event and exhibition production 
  • Web, newsletter and SoMe content
  • Program development and coordination
  • Production 
  • Project management

What can you expect of us – and what do we expect?

You study communication, media, art history or visual culture. The most important thing, however, is that you are motivated and want to bring your skills and experiences, views and ideas into play in our small team. 

We work unpretentiously, but dedicatedly, and therefore we need you to be responsible, structured and able to handle and prioritize between parallel tasks. You communicate fluently in Danish and English, in writing as well as orally.  

An internship with us is min. 15 hours a week from September to December 2022. We can offer flexible working hours in relation to your study, but you must expect that we need a greater commitment around major deadlines and open calls. Unfortunately we can not offer salary in connection with the practice.  

Send your application and a CV, where you elaborate on which internship assignments are of interest to you, and we would also love to read why and how you want to approach them. Deadline 21 November at 12 am to info@copenhagenphotofestival.com 

We look forward to hearing from you!


Hvad sker der på fotoscenen?

English below

Hvem har lige udgivet en fed fotobog? Hvilken udstilling er et must-see? Og var der ikke noget med en fantastisk film om fire kvindelige fotografer i Grand for nylig?

Vi i teamet bag CPF har ofte savnet et sted, hvor man kunne orientere sig om dansk og nordisk fotografi. Det er vi måske ikke de eneste, der har. Måske ville vores mange fotoengagerede følgere faktisk også blive glade for anbefalinger til den næste tankevækkende fotooplevelse?

Vi ved det ikke. For vi har hverken lavet en brugerundersøgelse eller fokusgrupper. Det er blot en mavefornemmelse. Men vi ved, at vi er godt orienteret i fotomiljøet og ofte også får skønne tips om fantastiske fotooplevelser. Desværre har vi ikke altid haft mulighed for at dele dem. 

Et naturligt samlingspunkt

Så måske skulle vi gøre en indsats for at dele dem og selv være det samlingspunkt? I vores arbejde har vi helt naturligt snitflader til mange forskellige aktører på fotoscenen – fra kunstnere, gallerier og museer til dokumentarfotografer, fotobogforlag og mange internationale samarbejdspartnere.

Få nyheder fra fotoscenen i din indbakke

Derfor har vi nu besluttet at gå i luften og simpelthen prøve et format af, hvor vi deler vores personlige anbefalinger og aktuelt nyt fra primært den danske fotoscene i vores nyhedsbrev. Ambitionen er at sende noget ud ca. hver anden eller tredje uge. 

Vi håber, I vil tage vel imod det – det er som I fornemmer stadig under udvikling! Vi tager derfor rigtig gerne imod tips og konstruktiv feedback på konceptet. Kontakt os på info@copenhagenphotofestival.com

Hvis du ikke allerede abonnerer på vores nyhedsbrev, kan du skrive dig op her

What's happening on the Nordic photo scene?

Shout out to all our lovely followers in the Nordic countries! Get our best tips and recommendations to photo exhibitions, events, books and more: Our new photo recommendation initiative is now live via our newsletter!

We – in the team behind CPF – have often longed for a place to get the latest news about Danish and Nordic photography. We are probably not the only ones. Maybe a lot of our photo enthusiastic audience would actually also appreciate qualified recommendations for the next thought provoking photo exhibition, engaging photo talk or joyful photo book?

Get news about the photo scene via our newsletter

We actually do not know – we have not made a user survey or a focus group. It is just a gut feeling – our passion jolting! Therefore we have now decided to try a new format out, where we will share our recommendations and news from primarily the Danish photo scene in our newsletter. 

Our ambition is to publish the recommendations in Danish to our Nordic audience every two or three weeks to test the format. Our hope is to follow up with recommendations in English too for our international newsletter followers.

Sign up here

We hope you will! And do not hesitate to contact us if you have any tips for exhilarating photo events in the Nordic region via press@copenhagenphotofestival.com

Nominated to Byens Bedste 2022

English text below

Nomineret til Byens Bedste 2022

"Copenhagen Photo Festival rykkede igen i år ind på museer i København – med Refshaleøen som centrum. Som en af Europas største har festivalen et væld af interessante udstillinger og temaer at gå om bord i – i år blandt andet vietnamesiske Hien Hoang, som bidrog med »Asia Bistro – Made in Rice«, hvor hun stiller skarpt på indgroede forestillinger om asiatisk kultur.

Årets festival var også særlig, da den gav et indblik i krigen i Ukraine med udstillingen »The Thin Line«, som bestod af billeder taget af ukrainske fotografer, der skulle have udstillet på Odesa Photo Days. I stedet har de portrætteret krigen i både byer og på landet."

Sådan skriver Berlingske i deres indstilling til nomineringen af Copenhagen Photo Festival som Byens Bedste Oplevelse 2022.

Stem og hjælp os med at vinde

Vi er super stolte over at være blandt de blot fem nominerede i kategorien Byens Bedste Oplevelse 2022, for som Berlingske skriver “Der er altid noget at give sig til i København. Oplevelser venter om hvert et gadehjørne. Men hvilken oplevelse har været den bedste det seneste år?”

Vi håber naturligvis, at du synes, at vores fotofestival har været Byens Bedste Oplevelse i år. Festivalen fejrer fotografiet i store og små gallerier, museer og udstillingssteder i hele København samt i vores festivalcentrum på Refshaleøen. 

Vi håber, at så mange som muligt vil bakke op og stemme på os. Det er et flot selskab af oplevelser, vi er nomineret sammen med, så hver stemme tæller! Vinderen findes dels via en åben afstemning samt af en Jury bestående af AOK-redaktionens genreredaktører.

Hop ind og stem på os her!

We are so thrilled! The prize is given every year to the best event in Copenhagen – this year for the 21st time! We are super proud to be among the just five nominated in the category Byens Bedste Oplevelse. Because as Berlingske writes “There is always something to do in Copenhagen. New events/experiences are just around every street corner. But which one has been the best the past year?”

We really hope that you think that it is our festival! Copenhagen Photo Festival celebrates photography across Copenhagen in galleries, museums and exhibition spaces as well as at our Festival Center on Refshaleøen.

Help us win!

The winner of the best event of the city is found partly by votes and partly by a jury consisting of editors of the newspaper.  The event with most votes obviously has a great advantage.

"You wish you were a Gerry Johansson picture"

 

“I can’t detect in a single one of Gerry Johansson’s pictures anything, however small, that shows off or pretends to be something else. You wish you could be such a person. Someone who no longer pretends or makes things up. You wish you were a Gerry Johansson picture.” ⁠The important Swedish photographer Gerry Johansson's works calls for this type of quotes from his fans.

Exhibition in Landskrona

Johansson's current exhibition at Landskrona Foto, The Books, is definitely worth the travel from Copenhagen – or anywhere if you are a fan of photography. The exhibition of Johansson's photographs also shows 42 of the artist's photo books – his favorite medium to disperse his photographs. The elegant, no-nonsens photographs are from travels all over the world. You can here more about his work in the interesting talk with Niels Bergendal from Landskrona Foto's exhibition above.

From 100 Year Old Negatives to NFTs

Do you know what an NFT is? Do you know what use it has or how to purchase one? Many of us have no clue about NFTs, the potential of this new blockchain technology or even its use and influence on the art world. But on NFT Friday 10 June you can get wiser on all of this when we invite you to join us for an afternoon about NFT technology and photography. Together with EyeEye.me we investigate its potentials, possibilities and the many new perspectives NFT’s have in relation to art, archives and photography.

Join us for NFT Friday

Friday 10 May Copenhagen Photo Festival invites everyone with an interest in photography, art or archives to join us at the Festival Center for NFT Friday, a talk and workshop on NFT technology with the three guys behind the Danish online NFT gallery EyeEye.me. The eyeopening afternoon begins with a talk and ends with a workshop about art and NFTs.

The Blossom Expedition

The  Copenhagen based online gallery will talk about their own story and how art and technology can benefit from each other. They use the NFT-technology to turn old negatives from The Blosson Expedition, an Atlantic expedition, into digital art on the blockchain.

When the three-masted schooner Blossom traveled the Atlantic Ocean in the 1920s, exploring exotic locations in Africa and South America, its crew members could hardly have imagined that the photographic records of their expedition would become the focal point of an art project almost 100 years later.

From 100 year old negatives to NFTs

Had anyone tried to explain to them what the project entailed, they would have dismissed it as pure science fiction. Indeed, the technological gap between the fragile, faded negatives that still exist as memories of ‘the Blossom Expedition’ and today’s digital space is almost unimaginable. Nevertheless, it has been bridged by three Danes who decided to join forces and introduce a way of making art that is quite unusual in Denmark.

Unique digital art objects

The idea of making digital art out of the negatives was born. Marc Fluri, Sebastian Tiku Lybecker and the third project member, Jesper Munk, decided to conduct an experiment – they would transform some of the photographs from the expedition into NFTs, turning something that was never thought of as artistic into unique digital art objects.

After the talk, Eye Eye’s own crypto currency expert, Jesper Munk, will give an introduction to how you can purchase NFT’s yourself.

Programme for NFT Friday

16-17 Eye Eye talk.

The talk will be in Danish and will take place in the Festival Cinema at Frame and is open for all with a Festival Pass

17-17.45 Eye Eye workshop.

To participate you have to remember your Iphone. The workshop will take place in the Festival Cinema at Frame and take you through:

Understanding what an NFT is.

How to create a wallet to store the NFT.

Purchase cryptocurrency for the NFT.

View it in your wallet.

Join us for an afternoon drink and some great tunes with DJ Henrique Hinnerfeldt.
