New Audio Drama Marketplace Calls for Submissions
PRESS RELEASE ·
Dramafy, a new marketplace for the best in Audio Drama, invites producers, writers and creators of Audio Dramas/Fiction Podcasts to submit their work for inclusion on its new streaming service. According to company officials, stories in every genre are being sought for this one-stop source for quality Audio Dramas. Submissions can be made through the website.
Dramafy, a subscription-based service (currently free for beta users until launch), offers its content creators a revenue sharing income model based on gross subscription revenue. The more a piece is listened to on Dramafy, the more the Content Creator may earn. A Dramafy subscription for premium ad-free service is $3.99 per month.
Available online and on a soon-to-be-released mobile app in June, Dramafy hopes to be the preeminent destination for Audio Drama listeners, stated Kenneth Harris, CEO, and a former production manager for National Geographic Television. The website, which beta launched in December, 2020, already includes many classic old-time radio shows. With this call for submissions, Dramafy hopes to curate the broadest collection of Audio Dramas/podcast fiction that are appropriate for all audiences in the market.
Like a “Netflix for Audio Dramas,” Dramafy plans to offer shows from independent Content Creators in addition to producing their own original works.
Submitted Audio Dramas must be scripted, fully produced and completed, with a full cast and sound design, and they must meet the content standards of Dramafy. Details on the “Standards and Practices” and “Revenue Sharing Program” can be found on the Dramafy submission page. Works can be submitted for review any time through a simple process on the Dramafy website, according to Harris. Content creators maintain full ownership and control of their work and Dramafy does not require exclusive streaming rights.
“Given the unique nature of audio drama/fiction podcasts, the effort, talent, and resources necessary to produce them, and the relative size of the Audio Drama market, Dramafy is confident that we can better serve the creators of Audio Dramas in the areas of monetization, marketing, and management of technology than other streaming services. Therefore, we have created a marketplace exclusively for Audio Drama/Fiction Podcasts so that this amazing content doesn’t get lost in a vast sea of music and podcasts” stated Elizabeth Hansen, an award-winning screenwriter and playwright, and Chief Creative Officer for Dramafy.
Dramafy will officially launch June 7, 2021.
