VIENNA 17.11.2023 - 26.11.2023
ROTLICHT is back on track, as the creative fixture of analog artistic photography in Central Europe. It will take place in Vienna for the third time this year from November 17-26.
Vienna is a metropolis for arts and creativity. With its history, its contrasts and spaces of inspiration, it has always been and still is a place of artistic debate. With this year’s edition of ROTLICHT Festival, we want to strengthen this concept of dialogue, dedicated to the artistic reflection in and through analog photography.
ROTLICHT Festival 2023 will be an event with a similar concept as in previous years. The Studio Building of the Academy of Fine Arts (former “Semperdepot”) will be the festival headquarters again, where the main exhibition is going to present the 20 winners (chosen by a 6-person international expert jury). The Open Call for the submission will open in June later this year.
Stay tuned on our progress in bringing ROTLICHT 2023 back to Vienna in mid November. Any news on our preparations will be announced here !
OPEN CALL 2023
Our main exhibition this year will take place in the impressive premises of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. On over 1300 m2 we will open the festival with our 20 winners from the Open Call 2023. The theme of this year’s festival is »Zeitgeist« and your submission should be at least marginally related to this theme.
More information about the rules, as well as the Q&A, can be found here!

We are pleased to introduce you to our 2022 jury. For the first time, 5 analogue photo festivals have joined forces and this cooperation is reflected in the composition of our international jury.
The idea to organise an analogue photo festival came to us during the Lockdown in December 2020. Our goal is to establish an analogue photography scene in Vienna, to connect people with each other and to provide space for exchange.
We are very proud to present the winners of the Open Call 2021. The winning images were displayed in our main exhibition at the opening of the 2021 Festival at our headquarters.
