The final Live Competition will be held on 21 October 2023 at the Media and Light Event Projio in Tampere, Finland, between four finalists chosen by the Competition Jury. The venue is located at the Väinö Linna square at the industrial Finlayson area, where the audience can follow the visual live show and and enjoy Projio exhibitions.
