The invitation was simple: “pitch audio storytelling ideas that break traditional formats and reach new audiences.”
The reward was not: In June, NPR will host the first-ever Audio Storytelling Workshop, where public media creators will bring their ideas to D.C. for three days of planning, training and collaborating.
In partnership with AIR, NPR invited member station staff and independent producers to bring their best ideas forward. Today, NPR announced 12 winning teams, including six independent producers whose projects focus on more inclusive public media.
NPR’s announcement outlines all 12 projects. The winning independent work (and teams) includes:
• A podcast by Latino millennials that speaks to the issues of their generation.
Team members: Pita Juarez, Carla Chavarria, and Dominique Medina
