Ten applicants will be chosen for the week-long intensive in New York City.
Spotify has announced Sound Up -- a five-day accelerator program designed to educate and support women of color in developing podcasts, from idea to pilot production -- will return to New York City this summer.
Now in its second consecutive year, Spotify will select 10 women for the program, which will culminate in participants pitching podcast concepts to a panel of industry experts. Those experts will then select three winners, each of whom will receive a $10,000 prize to produce up to five episodes of their series. Notably, the participants will retain the intellectual property rghts to their podcasts and are not required to distribute them on Spotify.
