Third Coast Festival is seeking entries for its awards competition, which now includes a ‘Little Mermaid’ award.

The Chicago-based Third Coast International Audio Festival is soliciting submissions for its radio documentary prizes, the winners of which will be honored at its conference in November. In addition to its usual slate of awards — including Gold, Silver, Bronze, Director’s Choice, Best New Artist and Radio Impact — the festival will also present a $1,000 “Little Mermaid” prize for a story “that is FUN in subject matter and style.” This American Life‘s Ira Glass conceived the award and will serve as judge.

The late deadline for entries is July 10. Read more about the awards.
