The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2022.

The themes and genres of expression provided for submissions to be nominated remain very broad, but some non-binding thematic focuses are suggested in the call for submissions to which attention is drawn. The themes emphasize a connection with the most significant events of the historical period in which we are living.
