La Plaça Reial Association is on the hunt for lighting designers, industrial designers, scenographers, artists, architects, urban planners, engineers, landscapists and students of such disciplines. La Plaça Reial Association says it will consider designs for the Christmas lights that could be ‘a meeting point between art and technology in contemporary artificial lighting’.

This contest is sponsored by Amics de la Plaça Reial in partnership with CiteLum and organised by Racons Públics.

The deadline for applications is 25 October at 2pm (UTC+01:00). For more information and to request the tender, visit ‘Llums de Nadal a la Plaça Reial’ website:
