Orestad Street Art Competition
The Orestad street art competition invites artists from all over the world, to submit their vision for transforming a 271 meter long wall in Copenhagen, Denmark, into a spectacular work of art.
Whether you do free-hand or stencils, brush, roller or aerosol paint, creep around streets under the cover of darkness, or exhibit your work at galleries around the world. We are looking for one artist who can create a powerful artwork, that will last a minimum of 5 years and continue to amaze the citizens of Copenhagen.
The competition is now closed - thanks to all the amazing artists that have participated. It will take all of Christmas to process the entries, so don't worry if you don't hear back from us right away. We are on it. The jury will convene on January 10th to choose the winning artist. We are truly excited about the quality of the received work. Stay in the loop @ facebook.com/artrebels. THANK YOU!

The final piece will be located in Orestad City in Copenhagen, Denmark, which is an up and coming, modern area known for its cutting edge architecture, built around both nature and water.
Orestad is still under development, with three of its four planned neighbourhoods currently underway, though Orestad City is already a vibrant neighbourhood with attractive flats, offices, shops, cafes and institutions.
The artwork needs to reflect and match the environment and identity of Orestad City.
