The event is heading into its sixth year and will be held on October 1st. Last year, over one million people attended the festival, including 140,000 visitors to the city, and featured more than 130 projects created by nearly 500 artists.
A highlight of last year's Nuit Blanche was the "Share Your Night" project. Audience members were able to share their photos, comments and experiences through the use of a real-time journalism platform, similar to Twitter and other social media.
Each year, attendees to the event are encouraged to vote for their favorite pieces of contemporary art. The top three winners in the contest receive $5,000 from Scotiabank. Last year's winners included Philip Beesley Architecture. for best exhibition project, Laurel MacDonald for open call project and Christine Irving & Site 3 coLaboratory for independent project.
