International Features Conference Audiodocs 2023

International Features Conference Audiodocs 2023

The 49th International Feature Conference, IFC AudioDocs, will take place on 21-24 May 2023 in Reykjavik, Iceland, at the kind invitation of Ríkisútvarpið (RÚV).

The event will bring together documentary makers from across the globe to listen to the year's best, most innovative and powerful pieces.

The Icelanders love a good story. They have strong traditions around storytelling, reading and writing. They use stories and poetry to make sense of the landscape, the weather and the world that used to be so far away from their isolated island. Stories are where history, mythology and nature have always come together in Icelandic culture and that is still the case. It is therefore very fitting to celebrate audio storytelling in all its variety and glory in Iceland. 

At IFC AudioDocs 2023, we will explore the future of the audio doc and discover new ways in which the art of audio will delight the audiences of the future.

Details regarding registration, access, accommodation, etc. will be available in January 2023.

Call for proposals

Are you working at a public media broadcaster/EBU Member or as an independent or commercial audio maker? Have you recently produced factual audio storytelling such as a radio feature, audio documentary, podcast, radio stories or series?”

To have your work considered for inclusion, please submit your entry by 17 February 2023. It will need to include:

  • Your entire audio piece. Full entries are limited to a maximum of 60 minutes. If you are entering a series, please enter a single episode.
  • An exact, full transcript of your piece in English translation. English spoken entries must also include an English language transcript.
  • A brief synopsis of your production (100 words).

How to submit your work?

  • Upload your full-length audio entry to SoundCloud: http://soundcloud.com, including a link to your English translation (in pdf) into the SoundCloud ‘Description’ field.
  • Please send your SoundCloud URL, the full English translation, the synopsis with the date of first broadcast/publication and your reason for submission to: IFCAudioDocs2023@ruv.is. All these documents should be sent only as PDF files, ensuring that they are in a print-friendly format.

Please bear in mind that each year, the number of audio entries for the IFC considerably exceeds the time available to listen to them, so regretfully the EBU Features Group will have to make choices. The EBU Features Group will meet in March 2023 to select the productions to be heard at IFC AudioDocs. All entrants will be notified by e-mail of the outcome of the pre-selection process.
