Supporting Australia’s Most Exciting Audio Storytellers

All The Best & FBi Radio are delighted to announce the re-launch of the Jesse Cox Audio Fellowship for emerging storymakers. From 2020 to 2022, the Jesse Cox Audio Fellowship was established by the friends and family of the late Jesse Cox to honour his impact on Australian audio storytelling and support mid-career audio makers produce adventurous work.

From 2025, the Jesse Cox Audio Fellowship will be hosted by All The Best and FBi Radio and pivot to supporting a group of emerging makers. Sign up to All The Best’s monthly newsletter to keep an eye out for further details and applicant call outs.

Strengthening audio storytelling through Australian community radio.

About JCAF [2020 – 2022]

This fellowship was originally established in honour of Walkley award winning audio maker Jesse Cox (1986-2017). Jesse’s audio career began at FBi Radio Sydney where he co-founded the storytelling program All The Best. He went on to develop innovative programming for ABC Radio National and was head of Original Content at Audible’s APAC Office. Recipients of the original fellowship included Patrick Abboud (2020), Jay Ooi (2021) and Christine ‘Kix’ Mwaturura (2022).

The JCAF, presented by All The Best and FBi, will continue Jesse’s determination to strengthen the Australian audio community, to push audio storytelling in form, to produce work that can be shared with a public audience and to amplify underrepresented voices, with an emphasis on emerging makers back where he began, at community radio.

Ensuring Jesse’s legacy & the future of Australian Audio Storytelling

Audio storytelling is a powerful skill that has the ability to connect and inspire. With shrinking opportunities to support creative audio practice, programs like JCAF are more urgent than ever. Donate today to help Australian audio storytelling be innovative, dynamic and accessible.
