Prix Ex Aequo is an international festival aiming to support production and presentation of radio plays for children and youth, as well as the international exchange of theoretical, technical and professional skills and know-how in the field of radio drama.

The competition is organized by Radio and Television Slovakia (RTVS) in cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). The festival welcomed its very first participants in 1996 and has been held since then as biennial every two years. Its focus on the radio drama production for children and youth makes it unique within the EBU events.

During the long-term existence of the competition, numerous radio productions from both Europe and beyond, including Canada, Australia, Algeria, China, Egypt, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea or Cuba, had been evaluated by international juries, set up of experts in children-focused literature and dramatic creation.

The already 15th edition of this international event will be held on 11 – 14 November 2024 in the premises of the Slovak Radio building in Bratislava.

There are two competing categories:

- radio fairy tale for children

- radio play for youth
