Hey there! Thanks for applying to be part of the programming for the 3rd annual DC PodFest in Washington, DC on Nov. 10-11, 2017. This year’s theme is “Power To The Podcast”. Within this year’s program, we will be highlighting the influence and ability that podcasts have to move the needle for social change, political policy, and community activism.
DC PodFest is a two-day educational journey and community connection for existing podcasters, future podcasters and even podcast fans.
What are we looking for?
We are looking to feature engaging speakers, hands-on workshops, and lively panels on a wide range of topics relevant to the independent podcasting community, as well as this year’s theme (see above). 🙂
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our goal is to make DC PodFest as interactive and hands-on as possible. When pitching your session, think of what your attendees can accomplish during your session, and the concrete tools they will leave with that will allow them to produce or improve their podcast.
This is an exciting opportunity to share your expertise as well as your unique message. All our speakers will be held in the highest regard on our website, enthusiastically promoted on multiple social media channels and will get a complementary ticket to DC PodFest 2017. We will also share any professional event photos that feature you, via email.
What do we need from you?
If you are selected to be part of our programming, we will need your bio, headshot, website and social media links, an outline and summary of your session, and bonus points for a 15-30 second intro video promoting your session and DC PodFest! We will work together along the way to co-promote on social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Please help us spread the word. We are on all channels @dcpodfest.
Finally, if you have a product or business you’d like promoted before, during, and after the event, we are always looking for sponsors, and we will be happy to provide you an extra-affordable package. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to see you at DC PodFest 2017!
