Grand Prix Nova

Grand Prix Nova is an international radio drama festival held annually in Bucharest, Romania. The “Third Edition” festival will be held on 1-6 June 2015. The festival is open to anyone from around the world, and participants can submit their own radio dramas. For 2015, entries must be submitted by March 1st, 2015.

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 broadcast, bring forward original texts and/or experiment with unusual sound editing techniques.

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. That artistic product that “breaks into” the market or society.

A jury including, but not limited to radio personalities is responsible for deciding the winners of the Grand Prix Nova festival. However, every participant's active input will enrich the pool of ideas upon which the final decisions will be made.

As our festival is open to the entire world, we want to bring together many different sound cultures. All participants will become informed of the most up to date trends in radio drama, and will get to meet new and old friends alike. This year too we intend to offer you interesting off competition showcases and workshops that will enrich your experience and inspire you for the future.
