Want to receive international exposure and connect with the photography industry in the Nordics? This is an open call for visual artists and photographers interested in a solo exhibition at Copenhagen Photo Festival 2021. We are looking for interesting projects concerning one of the three pillars of the festival programme: Framing Identity, Framing Society and Framing Vision. Your contribution must be a completed exhibition concept, and the project submitted cannot previously have been exhibited in Denmark.

The festival centre is curated by Copenhagen Photo Festival’s programme committee, which consists of festival director Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen, Charlotte Præstegaard Schwartz, who has a Ph.d. in art history and is a curator and researcher at SMK – the national gallery of Denmark, Søren Pagter, head of the department for photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, Sigrid Nygaard, photographer and photo editor at the daily newspaper Information, Balder Olrik, Visual Artist and Art Photographer and Claire Gould, curator at Copenhagen Photo Festival. It is the programme committee that processes all applications.
