They don’t muck around the folks at RØDE – going all in on podcasting after the successful launch of the Rodecaster Pro at the end of last year – they’re not running a global podcasting competition with huge prizes.

This is not just another podcast awards show though, think of it like a short film festival for podcasters.

Unless your podcast is already 1-2 minutes in length, you’ll need to create something specific for the competition.

Rode CEO Damien Wilson on the launch “We are very excited to announce our brand-new competition, My RØDE Cast,”

“RØDE’s reputation as the Choice of Today’s Creative Generation has been showcased time and time again through the success of initiatives like My RØDE Reel and Master Your Craft, and My RØDE Cast will do so once again, this time in the ever-expanding domain of podcasting. We can’t wait to hear what people submit!”

The competition will be judged by Mike Dawson, the man behind the Adam Carolla Show, Jacob Salamon the Co-founder of WISECRACK and Jordon Lott – content co-ordinator at Acast and producer of the Thinkergirls podcast.

There will be a Major Prize, Runner Up and a People’s choice award, all sharing in prizes like 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.

But the real kicker, the real incentive to make something to enter – the first 500 entries receive a Free RØDE SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit. That’s a $299 product!
