Doc Edge and Audible launch fund for audio documentaries

Posted Monday 13 May 2019

Documentary makers with an ear for a good story, it's time to sharpen your pitches! Doc Edge and Audible have created the Doc Edge Audible Pitch Programme 2019, a new audio documentary initiative designed to expand the scope of contemporary nonfiction storytelling. Your idea for an audio documentary must be able to sustain an entertaining narrative-based audio production of 3-6 hours, and you'll need a clear rationale for why audio is the best format for the content. Up to eight project ideas will be shortlisted.
Selected applicants will have to attend Doc Edge Forum (31 May - 1 June, 2019) in Auckland where they will have the opportunity to pitch to Audible's representative. Each pitching team will have 10 minutes to pitch their idea. Up to a total of $10,000 development funding will be distributed across the pitching initiative to successful projects.
