Book Odds

Hey all. This is a fun competition for you audio folks. Win a free trip to the Third Coast Festival happening Oct 28-30. Good luck! -Mia

We’re so very excited to announce that after a year of hibernation, the Third Coast ShortDocs Challenge is BACK! www.thirdcoastfestival.org/competitions/shortdocs/2010

This year’s Challenge – “Book Odds” – is a happy collaboration with one of our favorite bands, the Books. Any/everyone is invited to produce a short audio story (up to 3 minutes) inspired by song titles from their upcoming record “The Way Out” and including a couple samples from their vast library of musical bits, strange phrases and sonic doodads.

Read more about Book Odds, the Books, incentives (like winning a trip to this year’s Conference), and all the fine print/submission details, PLUS check out the song titles/download the audio samples at: www.thirdcoastfestival.org/competitions/shortdocs/2010

Submission deadline is July 5th.

Special tidbit for educators: Teachers! We hope you’ll consider introducing or even assigning the Challenge to your students. Book Odds are for everyone.

Happy to answer questions, if you’ve got ’em. Please help us spread the word, and hope you’ll consider participating…

Yrs, TCF

The Third Coast Festival plans to take on 2010 full force, and is looking for some interns to help with the assault. We’ll be hiring a Festival Intern, Website Intern, and Re:sound Intern, starting in March. These are unpaid internships, but will be extremely valuable for anyone looking to get a handle on the radio landscape in the US and beyond. There’s more information, including details about each internship, here: http://www.thirdcoastfestival.org/about_staff.asp#internships

The winter/spring internship deadline is coming up soon – February 1. Please forward to and encourage anyone who you think might be interested.

Thanks! And happy days as the year winds down.

-Julie
