The jury, headed by famous composers Raimond Pauls /Latvia/ and Igor Krutoi /Russia/ will evaluate the vocal of 15 singers from 10 countries - Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Israel, Spain and the USA.

The contest will be held in three stages. The participants are to present a retro-hit of their country, written before the 1990s, a retro-hit in a foreign language and an original song.

The international jury will choose the winner by means of open voting. The first prize is 20,000 US dollars, the second - 15,000 dollars and the third - 10,000 dollars. Three more laureates will get 3,000 dollars.

The ORT channel will broadcast all the concerts of the Jurmala festival. Some 40 million spectators from 45 countries are expected to watch them.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
