Acast this week announced the launch of a podcast incubator programme in the UK for 3 aspiring UK-based creators.
The aspiring UK-based creators need to be based in the UK and can apply online with and introduction of themselves, their podcast idea, alongside a 60-second audio statement explaining why they should be picked for the Acast Amplifier incubator.
According to Acast, a panel of ambassadors will judge the entries and choose 3 winning creators. Applications are open until March 14.
Winning applicants will have their first three episodes fully produced, along with their podcast’s branding including artwork and music. They’ll also receive a £2,500 grant each, to continue to fund their show, plus a free lifetime subscription to Acast’s top hosting plan, and bespoke support and free equipment from Acast and its partners – including Shure, Pirate Studios, and Crack Magazine’s creative agency CC Co. To cover all bases, from production to branding and monetisation, winners will also receive mentoring from Acast.
