The exhibition

Every December since 2016 Nordic Light presents, together with General Sponsor Sparebank 1 Nordvest and one of our Main Sponsors, the exhibition by the winner of the Nordic Light Photo Scholarship.  The scholarship is awarded during the festival (this year running from 3rd–7th of May 2017).

The winner this year was Jan Robert Williamsen.

Williamsen wanted to use the scholarship to develop a project about the city of Kristiansund, showing stereo photos of the city today, and 100 years back. This gave the audience a unique view of the city in 3D!

The scholarship

The scholarship have been awarded to a photographer during the festival week since 2016. Sparebank 1 Nordvest sponsors the award, wich is 25 000 NOK. The award money can be used for workshops, equipement or the developement of an exhibition.

The award recipient is expected to have an exhibition in December, in connection with the December Conference held in the beginning of December every year.

The winner of the award is selected by a jury, consisting by representatives from Sparebank 1 Nordvest, Nordic Light Events and the local publishing house Tidens Krav.
