Hear Now Audio Fiction and Arts Festival

Hear Now Palooza

Hear Now Palooza (formerly known as Podcast Palooza) is our juried competition for recorded sound works. Podcasts, audio fiction, audio theatre, and even sound art all are evaluated by our judges, and qualifying entries are awarded  Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze recognition. Two new categories; games and audiobooks, will be added to our Hear Now Palooza to be held after the March deadline.  

The pages at the links below offer hours of listening to a tremendous variety of audio works. Immerse yourself, skip around and get inspired. There is much to hear here.

Submissions open January 1, 2023 and close Friday, March 4, 2023, 11:59 pm CST.
