Competition announcement 2017/2018

lime_lab is an ambitious laboratory which sets out to explore current and future spaces of art. In line with the idea of transdisciplinarity as we see it, and in view of the current permeability of all art forms, it may evolve from a genuine literary work, possibly in combination with New Music, into an acoustic art installation, at the same time taking advantage of the possibilities offered by contemporary technologies and new media.

Akademie Graz, Forum Stadtpark, Literaturhaus Graz, ORF Steiermark and steirischer herbst are therefore looking for transdisciplinary radio play concepts

  • by single persons or collectives;
  • whose centre of living has been in Austria the past three years;
  • no age limitations

Previously unreleased radio play concepts in German language can be submitted, presented via an excerpt from the play (10-15 pages) and a two pages long exposé which covers the entire content of the play as well as a concept for potential realisation.

The winning project will receive the lime_lab prize including 4,000 Euros, with an additional incentive prize of 1,800 Euros. The participating institutions will furthermore accompany the project awarded the lime_lab prize up to realisation and presentation. Each institution will contribute its own resources and specific expertise. The deadline for entry is September 30, 2017 (date as postmarked). The prize will be awarded by jury in February 2018, with a ceremony scheduled for March 2018.
