The Third Coast International Audio Festival curates audio documentaries from around the world and shares them on the radio, on the internet, and at live listening events.
Since 2001, the Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition has celebrated more than 140 extraordinary stories and bestowed cash prizes to the most innovative audio producers.
On November 11th, Third Coast presented the 2017 Awards at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. A panel of 18 judges selected the most creative and compelling audio storytelling.
The Gold Award for Best Documentary went to “The Traffic Stop” produced by Tracy Mumford and Hans Buetow, reported by Jon Collins and Riham Feshir, and edited by Meg Martin for 74 Seconds from Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media.
