The year 2013 will see the twentieth edition of the Noorderlicht International Photofestival. This edition will feature a set of themed exhibitions, amongst which are To Have and Have Not (selection currently in progress) and The Sequel (see below). Contrary to earlier announcements and due to financial cutbacks, there will be no further submission calls for this year's festival.
TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT
Can the roots of our current economic and financial crisis be made tangible through photography? The Noorderlicht International Photofestival 2013 aims to peer into what has caused our current state of affairs, particularly into the so-called “1%” and its financial and political power at the expense of the “99%”. For this challenging theme, Noorderlicht calls upon the photographic community to help us build an inspired, profound and heartfelt exhibition.
'HET VERVOLG' (The Sequel - Dutch photographers only)
A second theme has been announced - open to Dutch photographers only - which loosely translates as 'The Sequel'. Seven Dutch photographers have been selected and commissioned to return to a previously photographed subject of their own, and by making new work based on the old, to follow up, deepen and re-examine.
