NOVA Entertainment Podcasting Superstar

Friday, May 19, 2017


Podquest is an initiative designed to uncover new and emerging talent in the audio entertainment space. 

In an Australian first, NOVA Entertainment are inviting aspiring podcasters to share their style of storytelling and have their idea turned into a podcast series that will be available on our suite of digital platforms.

In March NOVA launched the Nova Podcast platform, a portfolio of podcasts including optimised show content, original productions in non-radio categories and podcast series specifically created for brands. Now Nova has announced details of Podquest, a competition created to provide opportunities for new and emerging audio content creators through grants of financial assistance as well as access to NOVA Entertainment’s production facilities, technical expertise and distribution channels.

Aspiring podcasters will be able to load a podcast on the website until Friday 19 May to be eligible to win. All applicants will be judged by an industry panel with 10 finalists revealed by Friday 26 May.

The best entry will be judged by an external panel of industry experts, including Adam Martin, Acast’s Chief Content Officer and an international podcast expert, based on Originality, Narrative, Hosting, Commercial Viability and Audience potential. The winner will be notified by Friday 2 June 2017.

The winning podcaster will receive $5k cash plus $5k worth of studio and production time, and help from industry experts to bring a five part podcast series to life.

Entry is simple;

  • Record your podcast story or give us a sample of how your podcast works – up to 20 mins of content is ideal
  • Write a short blurb about your podcast including the title of your series and what it’s all about
  • Submit your entry here.

It’s time to get creative and start telling your story – it’s time to Podquest!

Check out the terms & conditions on our website if you want to know the nitty gritty.  Entries close at 4pm on Friday 19th May.
