Posted on 2 oct 2019 dans Multimedia Journalism

Emerging audio creators ages 18 to 34 can enter this contest.

The Hot Docs Podcast Festival is accepting submissions for its inaugural Hot Docs Podcast Career Accelerator.

The accelerator aims to foster new voices from historically underrepresented communities and equip a group of emerging creators with the tools they need to strengthen and sustain the burgeoning Canadian audio industry.

The winners will receive a free pass to the 2019 Hot Docs Podcast Festival and participate in a private pre-festival career accelerator and networking event.

Applicants must either be working toward a degree or certificate in an audio or media arts program or have three years or less independently creating audio content and not currently be employed by or have a show in production with a major broadcaster.

The deadline is Oct. 11.
