Do you have a little free time between now and the new year? If so, you might consider entering the 2016 Amateur Podcast Championships. The competition is presented by Monkeys Fighting Robots. The deadline for entry is midnight on December 31, 2016.
The 2016 Amateur Podcast Championships is open to podcasters worldwide who have less than 2,500 plays or downloads per episode. The podcast must be English speaking. The podcast episode that you submit to the competition must be from 2016.
To submit an entry, all you need to do is fill out the form on the 2016 Amateur Podcast Championship website and pay a $10 fee (via PayPal). Those who enter must be at least 18 years of age or older by November 1, 2016. All entered podcasts will be embedded on the 2016 Amateur Podcast Championships competition page for the whole world to listen to, with links back to the original website.
Each podcast will be judged on a weighted scale: 50% content, 40% sound, and 10% production value. Each entry will receive its own personal score.
The winner of the 2016 Amateur Podcast Championship winner will receive a $250 American Express Gift Card and year-long social and digital media push from Monkeys Fighting Robots ($2,000 value).
