Open Call for Artists, Designers, Collectors & Creators

Head Hi invites artists, designers, collectors, craftspeople of all levels, everyone and anyone to submit a lamp for the fourth annual Head Hi Lamp Show. This tradition which began in 2019 is an exhibition that celebrates the joy of light with a special presentation of unique lamps selected through an international open call encouraging collective participation and experimentation with light, design, and materials. ​​

The Head Hi Lamp Show is an exhibition of lamps, lamps made by YOU. We encourage everyone to participate, all ages, professional designers, or not, to submit a lamp! It can be a lamp you created, personalized or just a funky lamp that you found. Last year, we had submissions from France, Canada, Mexico, Italy, England, Angola, and all over the US!

Although it is not a competition, throughout the exhibition, visitors can vote for their favorite lamp. The Lamper with the most votes will receive a special gift.

Submission Guidelines

People of all ages are welcome to submit one lamp per participant.

This year there is a submission fee of $8. The lamp show has grown over the years and with the growth we need to be able to organize, install and present more lamps and communicate with more participants. The fee helps us do this more efficiently, thank you for understanding.

Organizers are looking for creativity, functionality, uniqueness, and funkiness, with a particular interest in “non-standard” materials and objects. This year we are also paying careful consideration to collaborations in the making. Collaborations happen with other makers, with nature, with materials, etc. 

Lamps can be any size up to a maximum of approximately 2 ft x 2 ft. Any lamp sizes larger than this will not be considered.

All lamps must be listed for sale. If sold, the split is 50% (to the lamp maker) / 50% (to Head Hi).


For any lamps that need to be shipped, Head Hi does not cover shipping costs for delivery or returns.
