Način prijavljivanja:
Svi koji apliciraju za zvaničnu konkurenciju u obavezi su da pored popunjenog formulara za prijavu (formular se može preuzeti preko linka na dnu ove stranice) prilože:

1. kompletan snimak predstave (DVD ili kao link za preuzimanje i/ili gledanje)*

Preostali materijal možete poslati putem elektronske pošte na: lutfestsubotica@gmail.com.

** Napomena: U slučaju kada je vremenski period za preuzimanje fajlova ograničen (npr. slanje preko WeTransfer-a ili slične platforme, za korisnike besplatne usluge), može se desiti da zbog velikog broja prijava, vremena potrebnog za preuzimanje (download) i usled drugih okolnosti nećemo uspeti da preuzmemo fajl do navedenog roka te će biti potrebno da ga pošaljete ponovo.

Bez navedenih elemenata prijava se neće smatrati valjanom i potpunom. Oni su potrebni radi selekcije (snimak – u slučaju kada ne postoji mogućnost da se predstava vidi uživo) i zbog izrade kataloga Festivala. Priloženi materijali ostaju u arhivi Festivala.

Selekcija:
Osnovni kriterijum za selekciju predstava je njihov umetnički kvalitet. O kvalitetu predstava koje konkurišu za zvaničnu selekciju odlučuje selektor Festivala (prof.dr Zoran Đerić).
Rezultati selekcije biće objavljeni na sajtu Festivala najkasnije do 15.aprila 2020.
Zbog velikog broja prijavljenih, pojedinačna obaveštenja slaće se samo onim pozorištima / učesnicima čija predstava bude odabrana za izvođenje u okviru takmičarskog programa.

Nagrade:
Međunarodni festival pozorišta za decu dodeljuje sledeće nagrade za predstave u zvaničnoj selekciji:

1. Grand Prix za najbolju predstavu u celini;

2. Nagradu za najbolju režiju;

O nagradama odlučuje petočlani međunarodni žiri koji se bira iz redova svetski afirmisanih pozorišnih umetnika i teatrologa.

Uslovi učešća:
Prema propozicijama Festivala, troškove puta do Subotice i nazad učesnici snose sami, dok organizator Festivala pokriva troškove lokalnog transporta, obezbeđuje smeštaj (hotel, pun pansion) i tehničku podršku.
