TAPE FESTIVAL x RANDOM TAPE Present: A Gold Tape Competition

An award for radio lacking a beginning, middle, and end.

Tape Festival is partnering up with Random Tape, a found sound podcast by David Weinberg, and KCRW's Independent Producer Project to present the first ever Gold Tape Competition. This award is for tiny, standalone, golden audio moments — a little clip, a deleted scene, a lovely tangent. These bits can be absurd, bizarre, emotional, or just completely unexpected. Like Random Tape, the Gold Tape Competition is a home for orphaned audio.

Don’t delay, submit your entries soon.
