II. GENERAL INTENTIONS OF THE FESTIVAL


Article 5

The general intentions of the Festival are enclosed in the Festivals motto Old Texts
Revisited and encourage genuine radiophonic expressiveness where an old text or segment

in the open discussions with fellow practitioners, and play an active part in the selection of
winning entries.

texts that escape strict literary definition.
An old text, in this context, is considered to be any text or non-material cultural heritage predating 1921, including that year, which marks the occurrence of the first radio drama.
