What is Premio LUCIA
Radio Papesse / Lucia Festival in collaboration with Fondazione Archivio Diaristico Nazionale presents
the 1st edition of LUCIA Award for the audio production.
Since 2006, Radio Papesse has promoted and supported experimental audio production, inviting artists and producers to challenge the rules of the radio medium. We continue to do so, more than ever this year, by joining forces with two great institutions and inviting producers, podcasters and authors to surprise us with new audio narrations.
Stories must be heard: Saverio Tutino, the founder of the Diary Archive, always said that stories must be heard. So let’s start from the stories of Pieve Santo Stefano, which, since 1984, has assembled a unique historical and cultural heritage, made up of over 9000 diaries. Unpublished private stories, involuntary literature, writings of ordinary people reflecting on common lives and the history of Italy in various forms.
The first edition of the LUCIA Award originates from a twofold conviction: that audio narrative is the best choice to restore the complexity and private nature of these small big stories; and that there is a community of talented producers and artists in Italy whose voice we want to hear more often and louder, on the radio and elsewhere.
PREMIO LUCIA IS AN AWARD FOR AUDIO PRODUCTION
1st prize = € 2.500,00
2nd prize = € 1.000,00
The prizes will be distributed in two segments:
• the first segment within one week from the announcement of the winners,
• the second segment when the work is submitted,
THE WORKS PRODUCED WILL BE
• presented at LUCIA Festival 2021
• published on radiopapesse.org
• published on ADN’s digital storytelling platform (online in 2022).
We have selected 6 stories
read the synopses
choose one and think of how you would like to tell it.
Write to us about how you would translate it into audio. We invite you to work on and with the format of the radio documentary, to experiment and renew the genre.
WHAT ARE WE EXPECTING
The winning authors / producers / production groups should produce a 30 minutes piece (series are accepted).
We are looking for proposals able to promote the stories told in the diaries, and at the same time take advantage of all the possibilities of audio narration. We are looking for original productions with a high quality of narration and sound.
The only limit is that, whatever your native language is, the LUCIA AWARD is for productions in Italian.
