DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2020 ― Radio producers and journalists worldwide can apply for the Radio and Audio Funding Award (RAFA).
The Radio and Audio Funding Award (RAFA) is awarded annually to an emerging audio producer based anywhere in the world to produce an original radio or audio documentary which fulfils the Whickers Awards’ core criteria.
This year, the main award of £6,000 plus mentorship from a top industry professional will be awarded to an audio documentary-maker to produce a feature-length programme.
Whckers Awards will also be awarding £1,000 each to the four runner-ups.
The grant is open to audio producers from anywhere in the world but the programme must be in the English language.
Award money will either be paid into the award-winner’s registered production company or to an individual (if they are applying as a sole producer).
Interested applicants are to submit up to six minutes of original taster audio recording during the application.
Applicants must have an executive producer on board at the time of the application.
Applicants who are shortlisted must be available for an informal discussion with the funds’ judges via video conference software in August 2020.
