All submission forms must be filled in English. Entries in languages other than English will be accepted provided that they are accompanied by thorough explanations of the work in English and a translation if possible. Words included in graphics, databases and web applications must also be translated. Radio material must be transcribed in English and video material must contain English subtitles. If a work originally published in a language other than English passes the pre-jury selection stage, applicants may be asked to provide additional information and translations.
Entries are allowed to have been published on any other media platform: online, radio, audio, broadcast, print or a combination of platforms.
Entries are allowed to be an individual work or a series of works.
There is no limit to the amount of entries that can be submitted by one applicant. During the pre-selection, the jury will choose which category is most adequate for your submission, although you will be given the opportunity to choose your preferred category in the application form.
