MY RØDE CAST Competition

The annual podcasting competition that was launched in 2019 is back for another year with even more prizes up for grabs.

To go in the running, podcasters are invited to submit an original podcast, 1-2 minutes in length. This can be on any topic and in any style – a condensed version of an existing podcast, a teaser for a longer episode, or a snappy show. Anyone can enter, even if you’re a beginner. All we’re looking for is podcasts with big ideas!

The winners will be chosen by a panel of three judges. They’ll be looking for podcasts that are original, engaging, and leave them wanting more. They’ll also be judging the production of each podcast – audio quality, editing skills, use of music and sound effects, flow and delivery.


This year’s My RØDE Cast prize pool tops off at a massive $150,000 worth of RØDE podcasting gear, including the RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio, Podcasters and PodMics, NT-USB Minis and accessories. There is also Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions, sound effect packs from soundeffects.com, and acoustic kits from Primacoustic to be won – everything you need to kickstart your podcast or take it to the next level. There are three prize packs up for grabs: the Major Prize, Runner Up and People’s Choice.

This year we will also be accepting entries from China! The winners will be chosen by a second panel of judges, which includes Zhang Dong, Vice Director of the Sound of Music program on China National Radio and Chief Content Officer of Yunting; Yin Qiming, multiple National News Award winner, Vice President and Chief Editor of Himalaya FM (China’s biggest audio sharing platform) and Vice President of Copyright Society of China; and celebrated writer, director and actor Zhou Jianlong. There will also be three separate prize packs for entries from China.
