It went so well the first time out, the BBC is announcing a second round for the Real America partnership launched last year with AIR and a consortium of public media organizations. With AIR, this year’s group includes the Third Coast International Audio Festival, the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, WNYC/New York Public Radio, and American Public Media (APM).

The theme is “Guns in America.” Many of you know Tony Phillips. He’s the editor this year, and he’s looking for three 17-minute features that, together, will comprise a one-hour special to be distributed via APM later in the year. The budget for each feature is $9000.

The deadline for submitting your pitch is Monday, July 22 at noon ET.
