Ms. Rima Abdul Malak, Minister of Culture, announces the opening of the second edition of the call for projects for authors of podcasts and radio creations.

Endowed with 500,000 euros in 2022, this scheme aims to support the authors of podcasts and radio creations in the writing or rewriting of original sound works requiring extensive research and writing, be they fiction, documentary, or hybrid and innovative formats.

It promotes diversity and editorial quality by stimulating new projects and by allowing new talent to emerge. It targets authors, whose earning potential is still low to date.

This second edition follows the great success of the first: 113 projects, selected from the nearly 1,300 files received by the Ministry of Culture, are accompanied.

The commission responsible for the selection of projects, chaired by Guillaume Gallienne, vice-chairman by François Hurard and composed of professionals from the podcast and radio creation, will meet in the second half of 2022.

The projects are selected in the light of the singular vision they express, whether it is the subject or the style, by the aforementioned commission. The winners will receive a lump sum grant ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 euro.

We await your creations!

NB: The presentation of the call for projects and the application form (open from 13 July to 28 August 2022 inclusive), as well as the 2021 jury report, are available here.
