Dear friends,

we are glad to announce the open call for projects to Piksel Festival 2021 in the hope that the Covid-19 vaccinations makes it possible for some artists to travel in November when the festival takes place.

We are aware that the vaccination is not evenly distributed in every country and therefore we will keep the hybrid format and do a double call.

One is for artists who can travel to Bergen. Please check the rules to enter Norway here: The rules will change in the next months.

The other one is for artists (who can not travel to Bergen) whose artworks can be presented either virtually/online (Mozilla Hubs, PikselSavers, online concerts, presentations and workshops) or physically at the exhibition where the Piksel technical team will follow the artists instructions to setup the works.

Please feel free to submit your projects to anyone of the open tracks: Presentations, workshops, concerts, PikselSavers and installations.

Deadline is 1st of September.
Please use the online submit form at:
