STORYHIVE is accepting applications for funding for podcast projects in any language. Languages other than English must include a transcription in English for Closed Captions for the video component.
STORYHIVE considers a podcast project to be an original nonfiction audio program accompanied by a video component, primarily designed to educate and entertain. Additionally, all projects must represent fair and balanced views on a topic.
Projects must be locally reflective, focusing on people, topics or events that are relevant and connected to the Project Lead's community of residence. (Note: the Project Lead’s community of residence must be one of the communities eligible for STORYHIVE funding. Please refer to the list of communities that are eligible for STORYHIVE grants before applying.)
The completed Podcast Project must be a minimum of three (3) episodes, each episode 15+ minutes in duration, with a minimum combined running time of 45 minutes including any and all screen/audio credits. A maximum length of no more than 180 minutes is recommended.
