AUDIO DOCUMENTARY MAKERS (prize, July 8) by Bear Guerra

Via IDA:

“We currently accept both stand-alone and documentary series. A stand-alone audio documentary may be either a one-off program or a single or multi-part documentary episode from a series (i.e. The Problem We All Live With from This American Life) that stands on its own as a documentary on a single subject or theme. A series is comprised of multiple episodes, conceived and constructed with a beginning and an end, with all the episodes being listened in order to create a complete story and/or support a complete theme (i.e. NYT's Caliphate, Serial, LA Times' Dirty John, APM’s In the Dark). Radio shows and podcasts that consist primarily of news reporting, interviews and conversational episodes are not eligible.”

DEADLINE: July 8.
