Bay Area audio tour company, Detour, now accepting pitches, deadline Aug 19

Very awesome Bay Area company wants your pitches. Details and RFP below!
Juliet here, Production Manager at Detour. Detour makes "stories that take you places — gorgeous location-aware audio walks" and I'm writing to let you know that we are now open for pitches! We are actively seeking ideas for new great Detours — and the producers to create them — in the San Francisco Bay Area.

We’re commissioning Detours that will be put together over a 3 to 4 month production process, starting in September 2015. We’re most interested in pitches from producers / teams with significant audio or video production background.

Haven't taken a Detour yet? There's a code in the RFP (attached) that will let you take one for free.

We’ve got a few specific places and themes we are interested in this time around, but we’re open to other ideas you have too. All the details are in the RFP attached.

Deadline to respond with a one-page pitch is 8/19.

Get in touch with any questions by emailing

Looking forward to what comes!


PS: Please forward to any great radio/audio/place-based story people you know. We want to give them work!
