We believe that listening, and creating, is for everyone—but it doesn’t stop there. Part of our mission to democratize audio means giving every creator a chance to be seen and heard, too. That’s why we’re opening an editorial submission form for our U.S. podcasting community to apply to. Each applicant will be considered for editorial features aiming to highlight a wide range of formats (including video podcasts), backgrounds, and experience levels.
You might be asking, what could this mean for me? Simply put, an editorial feature earns you a coveted spot as one of Spotify's featured podcasts across one of our community destinations or in our New Releases section. Lots of people even discover their new favorite shows this way.
We love voices of all kinds, of all genres, and of any length—so keep on reading for submission details!
- We are committed to making sure all content follows the Spotify Platform Rules, as outlined here.
