One minute radio documentary contest: and the winners are . . .

First Spark has announced the three winners in its One Minute Radio Documentary contest. Here they are:

Emma Norman’s The World of Internet Radio (above) won for Best Under 18 category. It is a tight collage of global Internet location identifications, languages, and vital statistics about Internet radio. “An interesting production brought to life by the incorporation of the snippets of radio from around the world,” one judge declared.

Juan Villalba’s The World’s Longest Musical Score and Helmi Wolff’s Would we Survive? (below) tied for the Over 18 category.

“The World’s Longest Musical Score is based on telephony,” Villalba’s entry observes, since as we dial numbers we create musical notes. Would We Survive is a touching remembrance of the Battle of London.

“Dreamy. Left me wanting to know more,” one judge said of the World’s Longest Musical Score. “I was with her in the bunker-a script packed with detail, emotion and memory,” a panelist wrote of Would We Survive.

The runners-up are posted here. The First Spark Radio Festival is a brainchild of SoundArt Radio 102.5 FM in the Totnes area of Devon, United Kingdom. Congratulations to everyone involved with the project.
