The deadline for submitting works to the secretariat of the 23rd Iran’s International Storytelling Festival was extended for the second time to July 1 due to the large number of requests.

The first deadline was on June 5 and then extended to June 20. However, it was extended for the second time up to July 1, according to IRNA.

In early June, the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA), the main organizer of the festival, announced that the festival with the motto “The Future Must Be Built” will be held online on December 21, 2021, due to the pandemic.

Hopes, wishes, grievances, devotions, and happiness are the themes of this year’s festival.    

The festival includes national, international, best stories of the country, the story of my life and podcast sections.

Iran plans to register December 21 (which is the last day of autumn on Iranian calendar, the evening of which is celebrated by Iranians as the ancient tradition of Yalda Night) on its official calendar as a day of stories and storytelling based on a proposal from the IIDCYA.

The Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution will make the final decision on the proposal.
