Dear Applicant of Backlight Photo Festival,
due to the overwhelming amount of 840 submissions (includes 48 video works) we are forced to postpone the date of announcing the selected artists/projects. Also to avoid situations of cancellation the organizer of the festival will need to wait for the funding decisions from the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture (expected in April). The jury is doing its´ best to get the selections done, – but unfortunately the organizer can not hurry the funding decisions. We will get back to you all as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Kindly, Backlight Open Call team
WE HOPE TO SEE AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE IN TAMPERE, FINLAND IN SEPTEMBER.
YOU ARE WARMLY WELCOME!
