The Google Podcasts Creator Program is calling for applications from podcast creators around the globe. This is an opportunity for podcast creators to get tools, training, and funding needed to succeed in podcast making.
About The Google Podcasts Creator Program
The Google Podcasts creator program is a partnership between Google and PRX that trains, mentors, and provides resources to underrepresented voices in podcasting around the world.
In 2019, it welcomed early-stage producers from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, Kenya, Lebanon, Spain, and the United States. This year, 2020, the program will serve creators from around the globe who have produced at least five episodes of their podcast since January 2019, and who wants to advance their skills and take their productions to the next level.
It is free to participants, and the 12-week training will be entirely virtual and conducted by PRX alongside international industry experts and Google Podcasts creator program alumni.
Participants of the program will 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 strategies.
- Equipment and software to help meet independent production needs amid the challenging circumstance of Covid-19 pandemic
- Up to $12,000 in funding for use as they see fit for their productions.
There are three cohorts, and you will only need to fill out the application one time to be considered for all three cohorts. If you applied to last year’s program, you will also need to fill out the application again. The application will allow you to specify which cohorts you are not able to attend if needed.
