Inspired by the James Beard Foundation’s 2013 Conference theme, we encourage you to interpret appetite broadly, from the literal to the figurative. Consider stories of hunger and obesity, craving and satiety, profit and desire. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us angry, make us think – so long as your story explores appetite in some way.
The Third Coast International Audio Festival curates, honors, and shares the best audio stories produced around the world for radio and the Internet.
The James Beard Foundation celebrates, nurtures, and preserves diverse culinary heritages.
