Launched in 2000, the Festival of Monodrama is dedicated to the art of the one-man show. The organizers strive to bring audiences a selection of the best Slovene one-man drama performances and stimulate the development of this form of drama and performance—which is usually also written by the actors involved. It is a competitive festival; an elected selector carefully observes the production of monologues over the span of two seasons, choosing only the best four to six pieces. The festival confers the Monodrama Ptuj Badge and a substantial financial prize on the winner. As a traditional festival, Monodrama Ptuj is gaining major importance for actors working on such projects, as this is one of the rare European festivals dedicated solely to the actor. The competitive part of the festival is reserved for Slovene actors.
