Objective

TWO WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN TO HAVE THEIR PILOT SCRIPTS PRODUCED, EACH WITH A BUDGET OF $5000. The writers will retain full rights over their story and have the final say on any potential deals which may arise. Plus, each winner will also receive $1000 Cash!

Writing a podcast script (or even adapting your existing script for a podcast) means fewer layers between your story and a potential audience of millions. Over 100 million people in the USA listen to at least one Podcast a month and 50% of all US homes have described themselves as “podcast fans”.

And what’s more, each week more Americans listen to Podcasts than have Netflix accounts! In 2021, 28% or 80 million Americans described themselves as weekly Podcast listeners. Show More
