Burj Khalifa-Emaar is calling on emerging designers, light and 3D mapping artists across the globe to submit their works for Light Up Show and also to be displayed on the facade of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

With 160 stories and a height of 2,716.5 feet, the structure is known to be the tallest building in the world.

The initiative, which gives both the inspired and aspiring artists the opportunity to showcase their works in the Burj Khalifa’s record-breaking LED light show if chosen, will also project winners’ works onto the Burj Khalifa iconic building.

Launched on Sunday, November 22, and to be rounded off on December 31, the initiative, on a weekly basis, picks winners, which are splashed across the 109,252 square metres of the skyscraper.

The Burj Khalifa Light Up Show to date holds the record for being the world’s largest light and sound show on a single structure. 

Individuals and groups can register their details and upload their design on: https://www.burjkhalifa.ae/en/open-call/
