Motivations:

We would like to award the prize to the Serbian entry, “A Large Stone”. We would also like to say thank you for the excellent English translation which was supplied. The programme was ambitious, taking on a serious and contemporary subject. The text was beautifully written for the radio medium, and skilfully performed. The music was an intrinsic part of the whole. At one point in the programme the text says “all I want is for you to listen”. We listened, and felt the resonance of the programme in ourselves. In the final discussion, what united the jury was our desire to reward the creative and innovative endeavour of the artist in radio.
