Further to our successful launch in May this year in which 20% of the applications were successfully awarded streaming contracts with the Czech Republic's leading theatre streaming site Dramox, we are opening our second round of applications for high-quality theatre productions of all genres and styles and in any language.

Successful applicants will be invited for a consulation meeting with Dramox to discuss logistics and licensing details. A contract for between 1- 3 years will be prepared for approval by the theatre company. Streaming works on a subscription basis and viewing reports and payouts are made quarterly.
