Prix Bohemia Radio 

The Prix Bohemia Radio is a festival of original radio creativity, first held in Mladá Boleslav in 1976. The categories rotate every year, though it always features an international category. The festival takes place in the city of Olomouc at the beginning of October.

Concertino Praga 

This international radio competition for young musicians is arranged under the patronage of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and is a member of the European Union of Music Competitions for Youth (EMCY). It was established in 1966. Recordings of candidates are sent to Czech Radio by organizations affiliated to EBU or members of EMCY. The winners - CP laureates - defend their title at the Winners Concert in Prague and at the South Bohemian CP Festival.

Concerto Bohemia 

Czech Radio's competition for youth orchestras and ensembles takes place in Prague every year and is a younger sibling to the Concertino Praga. Concerto Bohemia was likewise set up by the music department focusing on programmes for children and young people. Both competitions are based on the same principle: the anonymous appraisal of sound recordings. The upper age limit is 25 and the maximum number of players is 36.
