Rome, 4 October 2017 – The SIAE (Italian Society of Authors and Publishers) is back – alongside promoters RTI, APT and RAI – in search of young and talented authors of audio-visual products, sponsoring the sixth edition of the Carlo Bixio Award.

The award, made available for this edition by RTI, will include a special recognition prize of three thousand euros granted by SIAE. The “SIAE Idea d’Autore Award” (SIAE’s Author’s Idea Award) will be awarded – as in past editions – to the screenplay that, among those evaluated by the Jury, will distinguish itself for the originality of its concept.

At the same time, RTI will award ten thousand euros and five thousand euros respectively – on top of a contract with a broadcaster – to the young winners (authors under 30) of the Best Screenplay and Best Concept for a series.

The award will be hosted by MIA, the International Audio-Visual Market held in Rome on 19-23 October 2017.
