On Air Fest “Official Selects,” a platform celebrating creative short-form audio, is returning for the second year.

Throughout the festival weekend (Feb 24-26), On Air Fest will program exciting and experimental new audio works under 10 minutes in length. We invite you to submit pieces that emphasize experimentation and showcase a unique point of view: an ambient collage, a work of poetry or fiction, the sounds of your hometown, a gem of an interview, a tiny documentary, or something we've never heard before.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of leading audio creatives. Selected works will be awarded the title of ‘On Air Fest Official Selects’ and be aired to the festival audience.


Applications are due by 11:59p EST on Monday, January 31st 2022

  • Works must be able to be shared as an .mp3 file
  • Between 1 and 10 minutes in length
  • If excerpted from a longer piece, the work must be able to exist fully on its own without an introduction
