What is the Audio Fiction World Cup?
We’re so glad you asked! The AFWC is an international circuit of festival experiences with dedicated programming for Fiction Podcasts and Actual Play Podcasts. On top of each festival’s unique event, each includes awards that are decided by juries made up of relevant professionals in their field.
When a show is accepted to a festival, nominated for an award at a festival, and wins an award at a festival, that project will receive points on the Audio Fiction World Cup. Throughout the year we will publish the rankings as more festivals report their various stages. At the end of the year we will publish the final ranking for 2023 based on the decisions from the juries at each of these festivals.
If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to celebrate your work, submit to each of these festivals for the highest chance to increase your AWFC rank for 2023!
