As part of the Zsolnay Festival of Light 2019 Zsolnay Heritage Management Nonprofit Ltd. announced for the fourth time its annual international Zsolnay Light Art Mapping Competition composed on Pécs Cathedral, with a total prize money of €10.000.
Mappings will be displayed for three nights from June 28th to 30st on the façade of Pécs Cathedral as the main attraction of Zsolnay Festival of Light. As in the previous years, organizing partner and official host of the 2019 competition will be the internationally renowned Hungarian visual arts studio, Glowing Bulbs. A selection of out-of-competition works will be showcased on the night of June 28th – 30st, including Glowing Bulbs’ epic work, ‘The Book of Jonah’.
