Applications for the NFDS are now open

The CBAA is calling for applications from community radio producers for the annual CBAA National Features and Documentary Series (NFDS).

Applications are now open, and close on close Friday, 30 April.
Since 2013, the project has developed, showcased and distributed original work by emerging Australian community radio producers.
Telling stories of their communities, participants are trained and mentored to take their audio storytelling skills—planning, recording, scripting and creative production, to a new level.
Applications will be assessed by an esteemed selection panel of representatives from across the sector, including representatives from First Nations Media Australia, RPH Australia, NEMBC, and Christian Media & Arts Australia.
Over 2021, successful applicants will be trained and mentored by the Community Media Training Organisation to turn their idea into a new, 12-minute feature, played for a national audience.
2020 series winner, MJ Bakewell, says “The NFDS is a really great opportunity if there is a story or idea that you can’t necessarily shape but is staying with you. This was my opportunity to explore my idea with the training and support that was available, and share it as a radio story.”
The final pieces will be distributed and heard on community radio stations at the end of the year.
Past years are available to listen back to on all major podcast platforms, Apple, Spotify, YouTube, TuneIn and iHeart Radio.
The series is produced with the assistance of the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications via the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
