Google, PRX Fix Program Application Deadline, August 2
… $12,000 Funding For Pick Up
With twelve thousand US dollars for grab, August 2, 2020 has been pegged as the closing date for Google’s and PRX’s podcast accelerator and training program for producers.
Subsequently, the organizers are calling for applications from black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) podcasters and creators from traditionally marginalised groups.
According to the organizers, successful applicants with an existing podcast who want to advance their skills and take their productions to the next level would receive regular feedback on all aspects of their production, including editorial and technical input; training on topics such as storytelling, sound design, and reaching audiences through marketing and engagement; equipment and software to help meet independent production needs amid the challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic; and up to $12,000 in funding for use as they see fit for their productions.
The organizers noted that all the training would be free, entirely virtual, and conducted by PRX alongside international industry experts and Google Podcasts creator program alumni.
