Europe - With less than 18 months to go until the next in-person gathering, Showlight is putting out a call for papers. Now is your chance to share your lighting or terrific technology by presenting a paper at this quadrennial networking event, say the organisers.
The heart of Showlight has always been its varied mix of papers showcasing different disciplines and specialities of lighting. These are delivered by international lighting designers, lighting directors, directors of photography and architectural lighting designers, or associated crafts like programmers and manufacturers. Past subjects have covered designs and achievements in the fields of lighting for ballet, rock ‘n’ roll, opera, theatre, the largest tv spectacular and the smallest student projects, as well as lighting for landscapes, new and fascinating architecture, puppet theatre, animated films, and innovations in new equipment and solutions to lighting problems as well as lighting with candles!
One thing is universal - the variety of papers never cease to interest and entertain.
2023 sees the return of Showlight to Fontainebleau’s Théâtre Municipal after a two-year delay and momentum is already gathering. Talks are to be 20 minutes in length to enable as many papers as possible to be presented over the three-day period.
“We aim for variety, across all aspects of the lighting industry today,” say the organisers. “We want to hear about your experiences, your ambitions, your inspirations, your concerns, your successes and your failures. We are not looking for simple product promotion. Typical subjects might include: innovative and interesting designs, unusual projects large or small, solving the impossible, the future and the past - where should we be going and what should we have learnt, Issues that are affecting our industry and how we work.
If you would like to become part of Showlight 2023 by presenting a paper, please send the following at papers@showlight.org: name(s), company, mobile number, email address together with a brief summary of the paper you are proposing
All papers will be considered by the Showlight Papers Committee, and if selected you will be contacted for further details, and with technical requirements and accommodation information.
