Two ways to showcase your audio projects

Please don't forget about these two options to share your audio projects with a wider audience:

The Digital Media Sandbox Consortium (based at Tennessee State University in Nashville) is offering a national podcasting contest. We have entered this before, and if you want, I can help your group post to the iTunes-based contest and complete the submission.

A group of colleges, predominately on the East Coast and in the South (WSU Vancouver had the honor of being the first Northwest college to join the mix) will participate in an annual podcasting competition, which offers prize packages of up to $500 in cash as well as "gear."

Our audio stories could fit perfectly in the category of "creative feature," but those aiming for that distinction will need to keep in mind the theme this year, "distraction" as well as the submission guidelines (such as maximum length of 10 minutes). This might take a bit of editing, or additional credits and such tweaks.

A full set of contest rules and criteria can be found here.

Here are the winners from last year, to compare techniques and quality level.

Besides the Digital Sandbox contest, Jon Tanner also identified a site, Radio Drama Revival, that accepts submissions. This not only would be a great line on your resume, but if you can get your work posted on the site before the end of the term, I will negotiate a few extra credit points as well (for the person, or people, who work through the submission process, depending on what that entails).

Any other sites you have found that might be worth a look? These are good projects, and it's important to share your work with others,
