We've got some very exciting news! In The Dark has joined forces with Sheffield Doc/Fest, the UK’s leading documentary organisation and festival, to create a new award specifically devoted to audio documentaries from around the world.
The award will recognise our favourite audio – work that is bold, compelling and inspiring. We are looking for work that demonstrates a spirit of adventure, whether it be in editing, storytelling, sound design, subject or presenting style (where appropriate).
Pieces must have been made between 1st January 2013 and 5th March 2014 and is open internationally. If the work is foreign language, an English script needs to be submitted. Our judges this year are Jad Abumrad (Host/Producer, Radiolab, USA), Kari Hesthamar (Head of Radio Documentaries, NRK, Norway), Kaitlin Prest (Co-Creative Director, Audio Smut, Canada) and Nina Garthwaite (Director, In The Dark, London) will chair the discussion.

We are really looking forward to hearing your entries!
