PRX Sends Help
Our First Open Webinars
With more than 20,000 radio pieces on PRX.org, it can feel a little overwhelming. Can I add more people to my group account? How do I get paid? What do I pay to join? How do I get exposure for my pieces?
Sign up for a webinar! No experience necessary — they’re open to new PRX users or seasoned members who would like a review.
PRX 101 for Producers is Aug. 19 at 3 p.m. EST (register) and PRX 101 for Stations is Aug. 12 at 4 p.m. (register).
News & Reminders
In order for us to send you your royalties, we need your SS# on file. Contact Kerri. You can view your royalties from My PRX > Royalty Statements.
Destination DIY is one of PRX’s newest outside purchasers. Producer Julie Sabatier is looking for pieces that take DIY beyond home improvement and crafts, to explore all kinds of ways people work with limited resources to create rather than consume. Be sure to manage your opt-in preferences for Destination DIY and dozens of other OPs at My PRX > Outside Purchaser Preferences.
GPRX: Prettier, More Social
Generation PRX is our project to support youth radio. We recently redesigned parts of the GPRX network to better connect producers, pieces, resources and ideas. Check it out and share why you love radio with youth producers.
