Featuring electrifying acceptance speeches from all the winning producers of the 2019 TC/RHDF Competition.

The 2019 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition Awards Ceremony was held in Chicago on November 2, 2019.

It was hosted by Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods of the podcast Ear Hustle, with musical guests Tunes for Life — a Chicago-based collective made up of Lloyd Broadnax King, Allie n Steve and Maninder Singh. Nigel & Earlonne kicked off the evening with a very special edition of 'yard talk,' featuring attendees of the 2019 Third Coast Conference. Click here to listen to the Third Coast Yard Talk.

Then it was time to hand out the awards. Winners don't learn which award they won until the night-of, but they came prepared and delivered some riveting acceptance speeches. At Third Coast, we believe in the power of these speeches to inspire and create change in the industry — every year, the winners call their fellow producers to action through creative action.

Don't miss the hilarious half-time video recorded from inside San Quentin, parodying some of the most well-known podcasts of today!
