We can’t stop, we won’t stop – are you ready for another round? The second Projection Mapping Masterclass with Vivid Sydney at Chatswood is still well underway, and we’re launching our third one, the second time with Factory Light Festival. This is your turn!

The team of Limelight 3D Projection Mapping is looking for talented motion designers and 2D/3D animators to create 2-3-minute light / 3D projection mapping artworks for Factory Light Festival in Norway. We offer you an education program with consultancy and creative workshops in 3D projection mapping, two trips to Slemmestad, Norway, and an opportunity to present your artwork to a wide audience of light art enthusiast at one of the coolest light festivals ever. We are choosing 5 applicants, 1 from Hungary, 1 from Norway, 1 applicant from around the world, and 2 applicants for paid spots, also from anywhere in the world, who all get the chance to work with the pioneers of projection mapping to create the mapping piece of their lives. Have fun with us and learn some cool stuff along the way!

Unlike projection mapping contests, Limelight Academy offers you financial and professional support for your project. You don’t need to create content without help in order to be chosen – participants are selected based on their portfolio and dedication to the project. Sounds amazing, right?

A message and invitation from Factory Light Festival

"In Slemmestad, Norway, we created an independent light festival, which showcases the best artistic video mapping and light installations we can find on the postindustrial canvas of a cement factory. Our festival is embraced by the local community and provides a unique haven for the development of exploratory art within a professional festival, tightly integrated into the international art scene. We collaborate with passionate artists to continue their development and showcase the results in September each year."
