Audio freelancers, the next deadline for CBC Radio’s Doc Makers mentorship program is March 5.  There are three programs accepting applications: the Doc Mentorship Program, the Current’s Advanced Doc Maker Program and the Emerging Indigenous Doc Maker Program.

CBC employees, temps, and experienced Canadian audio freelancers are invited to pitch sound-rich, unique stories to the programs. If your application is successful, you’ll be paired with a mentor who will help you put your documentary together. Mentors are associated with a variety of CBC programs, including The Sunday Edition, Ideas, and Now or Never.

For more information about the three programs and what they’re looking for, check out CBC’s Doc Makers website. The site also has plenty of advice on a wide variety of audio documentary-related topics, including focusing a pitch, interviewing, and telling stories with sound.

If you have questions about the program, you can email docmentorships@cbc.ca.
