The Podcasting, Seriously Fund

We're delighted to have partnered with the Podcasting, Seriously Fund to ensure more people can enter our awards.

Below are all the details on eligibility and how to apply. 

The Podcasting, Seriously Awards Fund offers reimbursement for award entrants, supporting 200+ independent audio producers every year.

The Fund aims to make audio awards and competitions more inclusive, elevate the work of creators who may not have yet achieved the recognition they deserve, and help create opportunities for underrepresented communities, independent producers and early-career aspirants.

LWC Studios, the Fund’s pro bono operator in the US, alongside AIR, Pacific Content, Acast, and Triton Digital as fund partners, launched The Podcasting, Seriously Awards Fund to support independent BIPOC, Queer and Trans audio professionals in submitting their work to key media and journalism awards.

The Fund covers submission fees for producers, editors, and others. The Fund covers entry fees for high-quality work to podcast/media/journalism awards, accepting applications on a rolling, year-round basis. The Fund has also been extended to cover enrolment/registration fees for audio production training courses.

Those interested in applying can submit their information here. Those interested in contributing to the Fund can donate via Patreon, AIR, and Buy Me a Coffee.
