Artists, designers, engineers, architects, professionals and students alike, are invited to submit their concepts for the festival’s 2018-2019 theme: “The Medium is the Message.” Proposals are asked to address issues raised by questions such as “What kinds of messages does the medium light transmit nowadays? How does light shape or transform (digital) space? How does light extend and influence our reality? And how does it structure and transform our individual lives and society as a whole?”

The artworks submitted are selected by an international jury, along with the festival curatorial team.
