Embassy of the Republic of Singapore



Competition: “City of the Future”


For the second time there will be a contest for a light artist award this year. We would like to warmly invite talented artists and creatives from all over the world to participate in our international light art contest, jointly organized by FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS and the Singapore Embassy in Berlin. The theme for our contest 2018 is “City of the Future”, a vision which is intrinsically embodied in both Singapore and Berlin as modern metropolises. This is a timely theme as cities are increasingly empowered by digital technologies, and transformation through the diversity and energy of their residents. Heading in this direction, how will our cities look like in the future?



We would like to invite artists from all over the world to submit artworks celebrating their visions and perspectives of a “City of the future”. We would be delighted to transform the spirit of artistic works on this theme onto the façade of our modern Embassy building.

You can see the projections every festival evening at the embassy in Voßstraße and vote for your favourite afterwards here.


For the first time there will be a contest for a light artist award this year. The task was to visualize a convincing  and creative collage regarding the theme “multiculturalism”. Many international talents and artists followed the appeal. Certainly the announcement was also called out in Singapore, so that we have received many submissions from the Southeast Asian country aswell. The festival visitors may be excited how a multicultural society is interpreted in different countries.

The driving force for the new-talents-award was the ambassador of the embassy of the Republic of Singapore. You could see the pani projections every festival evening at the embassy in Voßstraße. More Information
