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 !
