Contest marks 25 years of international Radio Grand Prix

Entries are now open for the 25th Radio Grand Prix competition, organised by the International Radio and Television Union (URTI).

The union says entries this year should be on the theme of “Frontiers”, with participants from anywhere in the world free to interpret what that means.

Productions in radio format are welcome in genres such as reports, documentaries, essays, fictions, sound compositions, children’s stories and others.

Up to two programs are allowed per organisation, each a maximum of 60 minutes. Entries must be accompanied by the text of the production with the time codes in French and/or English, as well as by a copyright statement.

Winners selected by an international jury of radio professionals will receive The International Radio Grand Prix worth $5,000, Silver or Bronze Medals. There is also the Jacques Matthey-Doret Award for Discovery, given to a program singled out for its quality or its originality on a particular criterion such as originality, concept, subject, interactivity, direction, technique or sound environment.
