Organisations have until 3 September to submit their entries to the International URTI Radio Grand Prix. The Radio Grand Prix – first created in 1989 - rewards excellence in research and originality of radio programs.
Each year a different theme is proposed and participating organisations are invited to interpret that theme in their own original manner. This year, the organisers have chosen the theme of “LOVE”. All production formats are welcome, from reports to documentaries, essays, fiction, sound compositions, children’s stories and the like.
The 2011 Radio Grand Prix attracted entries from 81 participating countries and organisers are hoping to top that number this year. Awards include the International Radio Grand Prix (with a $5,000 premium) as well as a Silver and Bronze Medal. In addition, the Welles Award for Discovery recognises a programme for its originality, concept, production techniques or interactivity.
The International URTI Radio Grand Prix is open free of charge to any radio broadcasting organisation or association and institution.
Entry requirements and contest rules are available from the URTI website www.urti.org/grand-prix-radio-en. To download the entry form click here and for contest rules click here.
