The results of the competition will be published on 15 March 2023 on the website Shadow Pandemic.  

Each selected text will be awarded a gross prize of € 4.400,00. The selected texts will be translated into English and published in an online format whereas the omnibus play/performance, based on the award-winning texts as an integral part of the production, will be directed by Selma Spahić. Performances will be held in Zagreb, Belgrade and Maribor. The competition focuses on the theme of abused and neglected women during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Shadow Pandemic: Hidden Voices is co-funded by Creative Europe with financial support from the European Commission.
