 The main topic is open but priority goes to those stories with an epic theme. Stories must be appropriate for children aged 6 to 16 and the narrators’ skills in communicating to the viewers will be taken into consideration.

Iranian storytellers will be narrating their tales in English for the first time at the 13th edition of the International Storytelling Festival.

The participants used to tell their stories only in Persian, but have been asked to retell their tales in English. The tales must bear Iranian concepts as the decision was made to promote Iranian and Islamic culture.
