Best Documentary: Short (BDS)


Created in 2020, the Best Documentary: Short (BDS) category awards stories that are short in duration, but not short on craft or ambition. We created this category because we believe that the particular craft of short-form audio stories deserve a specific platform and a spotlight — and are a different conceptual beast than longer documentary projects. We are looking for stories that tell a rich, full story in 10 minutes or less.

There is one award in this category.


The 2022 Call for Entries will open in Fall 2022.
