Grand Prix Nova 2018 - CALL FOR PROGRAMS

Bucharest, 4th-9th June

Dear colleagues and friends!

Radio Romania announces the launch of 6th Grand Prix Nova, International Radio Drama Festival.

Grand Prix Nova is waiting for you again in Bucharest with the best of your creative works in long and short length!

Grand Prix Nova aims to attract radio drama productions from all over the world. We are particularly interested in rewarding innovative artistic works that explore new approaches to radio drama broadcast.

We like to define innovation as the artistic trend that reaches to the new generations by finding more efficient technical and aesthetic approaches to deliver its message. We are looking for artistic products that „break into” the market or society.

Grand Prix Nova already learns from its own experience so please observe the changes from the previous edition. The guests are invited to carefully consult the RULES AND REGULATIONS of the festival.

As we intend to offer you interesting off competition showcases and workshops, we are happy to announce that some members of the jury will hold workshops this year, as well. We think hearing the voice of the most outstanding professionals in radio and sound art is going to enrich your experience of participating in Grand Prix Nova Festival and inspire you for the future.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Bucharest for an intense week of auditions, debates and workshops. You'll also have the chance to discover life in Bucharest, a city happily blending Balkan influences and the Latin tradition.

A jury including, but not limited to radio personalities is responsible for deciding the winners of the Grand Prix Nova Festival. Make your voice heard, by joining the debates, and you might increase your chances to win!

As our festival is open to the entire world, we want to bring together many different sound cultures. All participants can expand their horizon and acknowledge some of the most up to date trends in radio drama. Here, you will also get to meet new and old friends alike.

Please download the REGISTRATION FORM and follow the instructions. 

All the registrations must be sent by March 31st, 2018.

The preselection results will be announced no later than May 2nd, 2018.
