The ARD Radio Play Days will take place for the seventh time. Again in 2010 all radio play fans are urged to come on over to ZKM and HfG Karlsruhe from 10th to 14th November! The entire spectrum of radio art will be there. In addition, all ARD state broadcasting institutions and Deutschlandradio will present their best productions and submit them in the competition for the ARD German Radio Play Prize. A professional jury of prominent personalities chaired by Uwe Kammann (Director of the Adolf-Grimme Institute, Marl) will listen to the submitted pieces during the festival and speak about them publicly. On all days of the festival, the audience has the opportunity to talk with the radio play creators. Listeners on the Internet will be the judges for the festival’s audience prize, the ARD Online Award. Radio play fans throughout the world can listen online to the nominated pieces and cast their votes beginning 2 November. The festive awards ceremony will take place on Saturday evening at the ZKM_Media Theater.
