RØDE Microphones launches new podcasting competition

To celebrate the launch of the RØDECaster Pro and RØDE PodMic – Australian manufacturer RØDE Microphones has announced an all-new competition for podcasters, My RØDE Cast.

Following in the footsteps of My RØDE Reel – the ‘world’s largest’ short filmmaking competition, which celebrates its sixth year in 2019 – My RØDE Cast is a global competition inviting podcasters of every experience level to showcase their skills.

Entrants need to submit a 1-2 minute podcast on any topic and in any format to go in the running to win a share of over $150,000 of prizes, which have been selected by the RØDE team to help podcasters kickstart their journey, or invigorate one that has already begun.

The entries for My RØDE Cast will be judged by a trio of ‘podcasting legends’. All entries will be judged on originality, creativity and production quality – how clean the audio is, use of music or sound effects, good editing technique, vocal delivery, flow, and so on.

My RØDE Cast has three prize categories: Major Prize, Runner Up, and People’s Choice – which is awarded to the most popular podcast as voted by the public.

The prizes include RØDE microphones and accessories; the RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio; headphones from Urbanears; sound effects from Blastwave FX; software subscriptions from Adobe; tuition from SchoolOfPodcasting; SSDs from Angelbird, acoustic treatment from Primacoustic, and more.

Entries to My RØDE Cast opened on Friday February 1 and close midday March 12, 2019. The first 500 entries will receive a free RØDE SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit.
