Nordic Light International Festival of Photography 2017
What this is all about

In one short week, on the rugged west coast of Norway, world known photography legends, aspiring photographers, students and other interested in photography, art and culture gather in the small and charming coastal city of Kristiansund. During this intimate week, students meet legends over a glass of wine and they go to the same lectures and find inspiration. Come join us this spring, for the photographic adventure of the year!

More about Nordic Light events
The organization behind the festival

When not organizing the festival, we still have a lot going on at Nordic Light. We have a gallery, which is open the whole year with different exhibitions. In our calendar you will find opening hours and more information about each exhibition (and about other events at the house). At the Nordic Light House, which also is the festival hub, we host a variety of different events during the year like creative meetings. Be sure also to follow our blog, where we post news about what we are working on and what is happening!
