Podcast contest: This jury is looking for the "Originals"

We've teamed up with Deezer to find the podcast talents of tomorrow! You can now submit your podcast idea to our podcast contest "Originals gesucht" until 11 March 2019.

Subsequently, a top-class jury - consisting of well-known podcasters, representatives of re:publica and Deezer as well as other multipliers and influencers - will select their five favourite podcasts. They will take a closer look at the originality, voice, style and sound design of your podcasts. The community will then decide in an online voting who will be chosen as the winning podcast at #rp19.

These jury members are looking for the Originals:

Ariana Barborie, Podcast Herrengedeck
Ben Fawkes, Senior Manager Audio Content Deezer

From now on you can apply with your podcast idea. The winning podcast will be chosen at #rp19 and rewarded with a prize money of 5.000 € as well as a production contract. The Podcast goes as Deezer Originals into series, the production costs of the first season are taken over by Deezer. The five finalists will also receive an MV88+ Microphone Package from Shure and a ticket to re:publica 19.

You can now submit your concept and a short audio teaser on the contest website.

We are looking forward to your podcasts and wish you much success!
