This national jury will comprise, under the mandate of NISI MASA, of a group of at least three persons, all 18 to 35 years of age, who will be charged to choose from one to three scripts for the final international selection process.

The national juries will finalize their selections between the closing date of the call for scripts (31/07/2010) and the closing date of selection (05/09/2010).

The finalist scripts thus chosen by each national jury will be submitted in English to NISI MASA European Office on the closing date of the selection (05/09/20010) at the latest.
