The BBBank Award for Newcomers

will be presented during the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe 2021

For the very first time, ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe (ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe) and KME Karlsruhe Marketing und Event GmbH (Karlsruhe Marketing and Event Inc.) are presenting the international BBBank Award for Newcomers in Project Mapping, sponsored by BBBank eG. The award ceremony will take place in 2021 during the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe. The application period for the award ended last weekend.

65 newcomers from all over the world have registered and applied on schedule, including applicants from neighbouring European countries but also from further away, like Japan, Mexico and Brazil. For this, we would like to say THANK YOU to each and every applicant.

In celebration of their 100-year anniversary, BBBank eG are sponsoring this award. The bank was founded and still resides in Karlsruhe. The winners in first place will be awarded €10,000. In addition, the production costs for their previously presented concept for the Light Art Festival Karlsruhe 2021 will be subsidized, enabling them to realise their vision. The submissions in second and third place will be determined by a jury as well and are awarded €5,000 and €2,000 respectively. All winners will be honoured during the award presentation.


The digital edition of the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE

lets Karlsruhe shine worldwide as a UNESCO City of Media Arts

The digital edition of SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe has drawn to a close with a digital show that ran “around the clock”. Spread across 40 days, the shows, beamed onto the virtual facade of the Karlsruhe Palace, became an artistic media event that garnered attention from across the globe. The shows were accessed in more than 120 countries. There are an estimated 250,000 people behind hundreds of thousands of server requests worldwide.

We say THANK YOU to all spectators who still played a part in the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE Karlsruhe in 2020. We'll see each other in 2021 - by then, we'll hopefully be able to enjoy evenings together in front of the Karlsruhe Palace once more.
