Nordic Light 2019

1.–5. May in Kristiansund, Norway


Nordic Light International Festival of Photography is the result of the (slightly crazy) idea among friends, to create one of the world's best photo festivals in a small town on the north-west coast of Norway.

Now, the festival has been around for over ten years, annually gathering internationally acclaimed photographers – as well as emerging photographers – for sharing of knowledge, inspiration and life stories.

Join us when we celebrate the passion for photography!

Artist in Residence


We are very happy to be able to invite photographers to our Photo Artist Residency! Our first Artist in Residence lived and worked here in August/September 2017 and the next in January/February 2018. During the project we will invite three more artists to live and work in the beautiful town Kristiansund.


Next application deadline: Fall 2018 (not open yet)

Volunteering at Nordic Light


Our volunteers are one of the most important pieces in the puzzle needed to make Nordic Light International Festival of Photography happen every year. We have a lot of great people helping us out before, during and after the festival, but we’re looking for even more helpers to assist us in making the festival a success. 

Do you want to join our crew?
