All India Radio Voice Modulation Tests
PLR UK payments coming for audiobook narrators, producers from library loans
Still time to submit for the Voice Arts Awards

Tip of the hat to Gary Terzza of VOMasterClass.com for sharing this post about PLR payments via his Google Plus account

Additional information from Gary's posting:

The PLR payment will be divided as follows: 60% for the author, 20% for the narrator and 20% for the producer. It would seem fair to assume that if you recorded and edited the audiobook yourself, you will be entitled to both narrator & producer fees i.e. 40%.
