Call for works / Phonurgia Nova radio awards 2010


Among the prizes awarded for radio and acoustic art, the Phonurgia Nova competition has, since 1986, occupied a special place by virtue of its recognition of artists whose work exploits sound as a medium for expressing the real and the imaginary.  Last year, 179

productions from 11 different countries were entered in the prize. The winners were Joaquin Cofreces (Terre de feu) Alessandro Bosetti (Germany), Marc Chalosse (France), Stephane Borel (France), Caroline Bastin (Belgium), Elise Andrieu (France), Sebastien Peter (Germany). This year’s competition will distinguish authors whose work manifests a keen sense of sound and listening as means of expression. In two areas :

++ Radio Arts will privilige all forms of inventive radio (documentary, feature, fiction, essays, Hörspiel, experimental forms etc.)

++ New Media awards will go to “sound installations” or works which have been specially created for “inter media environment” to bring new experiences in sound to listeners

The Jury is chaired by the French sound director Daniel Deshays.  The jury will deliberate the 11th and 12th of December in the Reattu Museum – Arles (France). The deadline for submission is the 15th of October, 2010. The jury will award: one Radio Arts prize and one New Media prize of 2 000 euros and two artist’s residencies at GRM/INA and GMVL, (two famous sound art centers located in Paris and Lyon). The main selective criterion remains the expression of an original artistic vision. A special prize “Pierre Schaeffer” will go yo a young author of less than 30 years old
