International Video Mapping and Facade Projection Competition

Genius Loci Weimar Festival


All interested artists are invited to submit 
their concept ideas for the Genius Loci Weimar 
Festival between the opening date of 27 January 
2016 up to the deadline of 23 March 2016.

The three winning projects will then be completed 
with the help of prize money totalling ¤45,000.

The three winning projects will be part of a 
wider festival to take place from 12 to 14 August 

Contestants are invited to submit their artistic 
concepts by 23:59h (CET) on 23 March 2016, 

- a thirty-second audiovisual video clip (HD)
- an explanatory text (max. 300 words)
- a letter of motivation from the participant or 
group, including a self-description and 
appropriate references. As part of the 
application process, this text will be 
professionally edited to produce a definitive 
self-description (max. 300 words) - details of 
the support team and designated representatives

The three best submissions will be awarded the commission:

- Commissions will comprise the creation of a 
10-15 minute long high-resolution audio-visual 
production to be presented in the form of video 
mapping on the respective locations during the 
festival weekend (12 to 14 August 2016).
- A budget of 15,000 euros will be made available 
for the completion of each prize-winning 
- Productions will be of the highest technical and artistic quality

Key requirements for the Genius Loci Weimar competition:

- An innovative composition in the form of an 
audio-visual video mapping, with particular 
observance paid to the Genius Loci.
- An individual, original and sophisticated 
handling of the spirit of the location with 
respect to history and architecture, as well as 
to the people who were active there and who have 
influenced the surroundings, and to historical 
events that have left visible or invisible traces.
- The conscious omission of erratic gimmickry and 
showmanship, intrusive clichés and careless 
historical retelling.
