Podbang is a challenge run by the Amplificathon community for novel-length podfic. Minimum story length is 20,000 words.

"what the heck is a podbang? we came up with it last year. it's a scheme to get everyone presents, basically. surprise presents of novel-length podfic. we're encouraging gift givers to look to the various big bang challenges throughout fandom to choose the gifts they want to give--hence the name. (but not exclusively big bang fics! it's just, you know, that's a handy place to start. also, catchy title."[1]

In the 2010 challenge, participants signed up in August, the due date for completing assignments was December 1, and the podfics went live starting on December 20.
