Do You Have the ACX Seal of Approval?

ACX is a great place to find talented audiobook producers, narrators and engineers. Whether they brought years of experience or educated themselves using our Video Lessons and Resources, if they’re on ACX, they can be counted on to produce great sounding, professional, retail-ready audiobooks.  But what about the crème de la crème of ACX? We call these extra-dependable, knowledgeable members Audible Approved Producers.

How do I qualify, and how do I apply?

Anyone can apply to be Audible Approved, but as a general rule,  Audible Approved Producers should have a verifiable record of achievement in the audiobook industry. This means that you’ve narrated and/or produced 25 audiobooks currently on Audible.com, have favorable reviews of your productions, and have a strong producer profile on ACX. If you think you’re one of the best audiobook producers in the business, you can email us at support@acx.com and ask to be considered as an Audible Approved Producer.

What do I get?

If you’re accepted as Audible Approved, a badge will appear in your profile, as in the example below:

That gives you our seal of approval; the thumbs-up from Audible.com shows authors and Rights Holders that you’re experienced and trusted, and it can encourage them to choose you for their project!
