Podster Magazine has announced the Podster “Best Undiscovered Podcast” Competition. The contest is being hosted and run by Shelf Media Group. It is a competition that is open to podcasters worldwide.
Podcasts that are eligible to enter this contest must have an average of fewer than 1,000 downloads/listens per episode. The podcast must be done in English. Authors of the podcast must be at least 18 years of age at the time of entry.
The competition entry period began on June 1, 2016, and will end on November 15, 2016. Submissions to the competition will be accepted during the duration of that time period. Podcasters can enter by sending an email with a listening or download link of one episode of their podcast to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a $50 entry fee per podcast episode entered. The entry fee can be paid by PayPal (and it is also possible to pay by check). There is no limit to the number of episodes that an individual can enter. Each one will be considered a separate entry. This competition does not divide entries into genre categories.
The winner of the “Best Undiscovered Podcast” Competition will receive a full-page ad in a 2017 issue of Podster Magazine (described as “rate card value $1,000″). The winner will also receive an interview in a 2017 issue of Podster. Five finalists will receive editorial coverage in a 2017 issue of Podster. In addition, Podster will feature some “notable” podcasts that entered the competition in a 2017 issue of Podster.
