You can apply with five entries (work or series of works) and for each entry you can upload up to four documentary images. You can apply in, but not limited to, the categories of art, architecture and craft/design.

There is a time limit of 5 minutes on video, film, animation and other time-based works. The time limit only applies to the application viewing and not to the final screening of any accepted works. The Charlottenborg Foundation encourages applicants to add notes or additional descriptions of the uploaded works.

The works must be no more than 2 years old from the date of application and must not have been exhibited before at other censored exhibitions in Denmark.
