In an Australian first, NOVA Entertainment has announced the launch of a new initiative designed to discover and support new and emerging podcasters.

PodQuest will provide opportunities for new and emerging audio content creators through grants of financial assistance, as well as access to NOVA’s production facilities, technical expertise and distribution channels.

Aspiring podcasters will be able to load a podcast on the PodQuest website from today until Friday 19 May to be eligible to win.

Applicants will be judged by an internal and external industry panel, including Acast chief content officer Adam Martin, with up to 10 podcasters revealed by Friday 26 May.

The winner will be announced by Friday 2 June and will utilise NOVA Entertainment’s expertise and production capabilities to create a five-part series podcast for release.

PodQuest will compliment the Nova Podcast platform, which was launched in March, and offers portfolio of podcasts, including optimised show content, original productions in non-radio categories and podcast series specifically created for brands.

NOVA recently published two podcast series in non-radio categories with The Wise Guides with Amber Petty featuring wisdom from women who are successful in their own special unique fields, and The Abstract History of Music with Chit Chat, a music-based, 10-part podcast.

The Radio network also launched the first podcast series created especially for Ladbrokes – Left Right Out – which provides a light-hearted look at the world of sport each week.

Jay Walkerden, NOVA Entertainment’s head of podcasting, said: “NOVA Entertainment has a commitment to creating compelling content for audiences to access across multiple platforms, and our podcasting strategy is another extension of this.

“We are excited to launch Nova Podcast, which will include pillars centred around our on-air shows, growing new talent through Podquest and working with brands to develop rich content that can connect brands with audiences.”
