    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The Third Coast International Audio Festival selects the most creative and insightful audio stories produced for the radio and web from around the world to share with local, national, and international audiences across a variety of platforms. Third Coast provides support to producers, creates opportunities for new stories to be produced, and uses audio storytelling as a means to engage communities in dialogue about relevant social and cultural issues. Projects include the hour-long Re:sound show on WBEZ, the biennial Third Coast Conference, the ShortDocs Challenge, The Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Competition, and the Filmless Festival.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Third Coast International Audio Festival $300,000 between 2002 and 2015.
