The carnival poster is one of the oldest and most traditional features of Lundakarnevalen. In 1912, the very first came and has since been a standing carnival feature - maybe it will be you who makes the carnival poster 110 years later? The poster permeates everything throughout the carnival and reaches millions of people every carnival!

The competition is now closed.


Karnevalsmelodin will spread the carnivalistic feeling now and in the future. It will set to music everything from pre-parties to at home on the TV couch and reach out to tens of thousands of people. Contribute with your creative ability and compose the carnival!

The competition is now closed.


Eurovision Song Contest has one. The OS has one. The Nobel party has one. The ice cream car has one. Now it is YOUR turn to create Lundakarnevalens own overture that will represent the carnival in a variety of contexts.

The competition is now closed.

Small Amusments

If you are sitting on a clever script idea, this could be the competition for you! A Smånöje is a small performance of a creative kind with an audience of 50-150 people. The time required per performance is barely half an hour and rolls on at breakneck speed during the carnival days! What experience does the audience want to do?

The competition is now closed.

Tent Amusments

Join in shaping the carnival area! Through joy and mischief, our approximately 20 tent pleasures spread the carnivalistic joy to the visitors. A small group of visitors can for 5-10 minutes experience something they could never have imagined! You may remember the tent pleasure "See paradise" from -80 when the tent visitors were tricked out on paradise street outside the area and had to pay to enter again. Or maybe the tent "moon landing" from -14 when visitors got to experience a rocket launch that resulted in "moonade" and an ass in papier mache. What is your idea?

The competition is now closed.

Train Carriages

The train, Lundakarnavalen's oldest pleasure, shows what the carnivalists really stand for. Together we will march through central Lund in front of 450,000 visitors on the carnival weekend! What is your vision on a carriage or between crews in the Carnival train?
