Created in 1989, the International URTI Radio Grand Prix rewards programmes from the whole world for their efforts of research and originality. It is different from the other international competitions because of an original principle: each year a different theme is proposed to the participants and left to their own free interpretation. All the productions, all the radio forms are welcome: reports, documentaries, essays, fictions, sound compositions, children’s stories…
An international jury of radio professionals meets each autumn in a different country, at the invitation of an URTI member.
In 2014, the chosen theme for the 26th edition is: WAR.
Rewarding the efforts of research and originality, awards will be divided up as follows:
- The International Radio Grand Prix, endowed with a sum of $3,000
- The Silver Medal
- The Bronze Medal
- The Jacques Matthey-Doret Award for Discovery, given to a programme it wishes to single out for its quality or its originality on a particular criterion: originality, concept, subject, interactivity, direction, technique, sound environment, etc.
The URTI Prix is open for free to any broadcast or production radio organism.
