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.

Interesse for kommunikation, events eller programplanlægning?

Til efteråret 2024 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:

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 til efteråret kan skræddersys efter de krav og betingelser, der er på netop din uddannelse, men vi anbefaler at du kan være her min. 15 timer ugentligt. Vi kan desværre ikke tilbyde løn i forbindelse med praktikken.

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 
  • Communication on text
  • 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 English, in writing as well as orally, and if you can communicate in Danish as well it's a plus.  

An internship with us this fall can be adjusted according to the requirements and conditions set by your education. But we recommend that you are available for a minimum of 15 hours weekly. Unfortunately we can not offer salary in connection with the practice.  

APPLY HERE: Send your application and a CV and 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.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Eller måske planlægger du en fotobogslancering, fotoperformance eller en artist talk med en anerkendt fotograf eller kamerabaseret kunstner?

Hvis det er tilfældet, kan du nu blive klogere på, hvad det vil sige, at være udstillings- eller eventpartner under Copenhagen Photo Festival, når vi inviterer til

FESTIVAL KICKSTART 2024

den 17. januar kl. 17-18.30.

i Villa Kultur på Krausesvej 3 på Østerbro

Her kan du høre mere om vores tanker for 2024, hvor vi fejrer 15 års jubilæum, og selv bringe gode ideer på banen. Vi ønsker nemlig at skabe en endnu stærkere sammenhængskraft på tværs af festivalens partnere. I løbet af mødet vender vi både publikumsbesøg, aktiviteter og nye initiativer såvel som markedsføringstiltag. Der bliver rig mulighed for at lufte ideer, forventninger og spørgsmål (se program nedenfor). 

I 2024 var der 44.000 besøgende på tværs af Copenhagen Photo Festivals +70 forskellige udstillings-, event-, og fotobogspartnere samt et imponerende udstillings-, talk- og eventprogram. Vi ser allerede nu frem til Copenhagen Photo Festival 2024 den 6.-16. juni og håber, at I vil være med til at fejre fotografiet sammen med os til den tid!

 Vi har en masse spændende ting i støbeskeen og vil blandt andet folde årets tema – ‘‘Entanglement’ – ud.

Rewilding: Panel debates at festival center

Rewilding, sustainability and artificial intelligence

In collaboration with FUTURES Photography Platform we invite you to participate in a series of panel debates about art in relation to rewilding, sustainability and artificial intelligence on 1 and 2 June. The participating panelists are a mix of the exhibiting artists and invited speakers from the Danish and international art scene including Carina Hammer, head of sustainability at Louisiana, Majken Overgaard from Korridor, Raphaël Biollay, curator at Images Vevey and others.

CPF always put great focus on the architectural and spatial aspects when selecting artists and when designing specific exhibitions. Our considerations are led by a principle of sustainability, finding creative ways to blur the border between our exhibitions and the nature and atmosphere of our exhibition park at Refshaleøen in Central Copenhagen. Focusing on photography, architecture and sustainability is therefore at the core of our DNA as a photo festival. 

Inspirational panels about the future of art and photography

The panels are thus sprung out of our overarching theme of 2023 and is a nod homage to Copenhagen’s celebration as World Capital of Architecture in 2023 which focuses on sustainability. The panels take place in a double tipi in the center of our rewilded exhibition park and seek to inspire, explore the theme, and not least give space to networking across national and cultural borders and across professional circles and industries within culture.

Programme

Rewilding art and photography – a sustainable arts practice

Public panel discussions 1 and 2 June

1 June - 1 pm-4 pm: A sustainable art’s practice – moderated by Imagine5 

Artists and experts in the panel: Carina Hammer, head of sustainability at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, artist Alice Pallot (FR), photographer Daniel Hinks (CH/UK) and Krzysztof Candrowicz, curator, founder of Fotofestiwal Lodz and Jacob Theilgaard, director of Bæredygtigt Kulturliv.nu

 2 June - 10 am-1 pm: Art in Public Space

Is the future of art to be more public – is it more sustainable, more democratic? Possibilities and challenges.

Artists and experts in the panel: CPF solo artists Erik Berglin (SE), Hilla Kurki (FI) and Kristina Knipe (US), Raphaël Biollay, curator at Images Vevey and Louise Fiil Hansen, partner and design director at SLA Architects. 

2 June - 2-3:30 pm: Panel discussion about future aspects

Artificial intelligence, utopias and science.

Artists and experts in the panel: CPF solo artist Craig Ames (UK), Futures 2023 talent Susanne Fagerlund (SE) and Futures artist Daniel Szalai (HU) and Majken Overgaard (DK) from Korridor and Lisa Giomar Hydén from Fotografiska in Stockholm.

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

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!

Nominated to Byens Bedste 2022

What wonderful news! Copenhagen Photo Festival has just been nominated to Byens Bedste Oplevelse 2022 (Copenhagen’s Best Event  2022) by the Danish national newspaper Berlingske and its Copenhagen section AOK!!

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. Therefore we hope you will support our nomination – it would truly mean the world to us being a small non-profit festival! Please note you do not have to be a resident of Copenhagen or Denmark to participate in the vote – you can vote wherever you are in the world!

Hop in and vote for us here! 

 


Help us get better!
