Nobel Peace Prize winner Dmitry Muratov at the SIGNIS World Congress: “it’s a journalist’s duty to fight hate with facts”
The SIGNIS Asia Radio Desk in conjunction with the SIGNIS Radio Desk, will be hosting the first SIGNIS Catholic International Radio Encounter, in February 2022 in Sri Lanka, with the theme, “Engaging Youth for a Dynamic Radio, Uniting Asia and the World.” Various SIGNIS’ international radio experts will come together at this forum to share their experiences and learn from each other. A key feature will be the participation of a select group of young people from every continent. Officials from the Dicastery of Communication will also be invited to participate in this gathering.
In order to generate interest amongst young people, a decision was made to hold the Youth Podcast Competition 2021. For this contest, participants will be asked to submit 1-3 minute podcasts on Pope Francis’ recent Encyclical
“Fratelli Tutti: On fraternity and social friendship.” This is also a way to encourage youth to read the document. All podcasts must be submitted with a synopsis in English, and they must have the recommendation or approval of their SIGNIS Country President.
Youth from SIGNIS Africa, Asia, Latin America & the Caribbean, Europe, North America & the Pacific Regions will be invited to join the competition. Apart from cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and, 4th places, the winner(s) will be sponsored to attend the International Radio Contest in Sri Lanka in 2022. The podcasts will be made available for broadcast on Vatican Radio.
