Tickets, Podcast Champion and Listeners' Choice / by Matt Deegan

Phew!

We've been overwhelmed by entries for the inaugural British Podcast Awards and boy do you like to leave it to the last minute! We had half the entries arriving up until Sunday and then another half arrived on Monday! They're now winging their way to the judges.

Listener Choice Award

All entries qualify for the audioBoom Best Podcast Award, however we're also opening up a category for listeners to pick their favourite podcast - the Listeners' Choice Award

Whether you've entered so far, or not, you can encourage your listeners to vote for you by sending them to britishpodcastawards.com/vote. It's winner takes all - so get encouraging! Listeners who vote also go in the draw to win two tickets to the awards ceremony!

To be eligible, podcasts need to have been produced in Great Britain or Northern Ireland and have published at least six episodes in 2016.

Awards Ceremony

Speaking of which, we've opened up the box office to buy tickets to Podcasting's Biggest Party on the evening Saturday April 29th. Whether you're a podcaster or a listener come and celebrate the greatest medium. Tickets available here.

Podcast Champion

We're also after you're suggestions for who should be our Podcast Champion. We're looking for suggestions of people who've helped to take the medium forward in 2016. They could be a podcaster, a journalist, a campaigner, anyone! Send your suggestion here.
