Podcasters have been urged to complete their submissions to the seventh-annual British Podcast Awards, the final deadline for which is midnight on 1 June, which means that this is the last call for podcasters to submit their entries for a chance to win before this year’s ceremony takes place on 28 September.
This year’s British Podcast Awards are powered by PodPod, under Haymarket Media Group, and the awards night will be taking place at the HERE at Outernet in London. Elizabeth Day, host of the How To Failpodcast, has been announced as the Chair of Judges for the event.
This year includes new categories such as Best History, Kids, and Parenting podcasts, in addition to awards across a range of podcast genres. The show also includes awards for different formats such as Interview or Fiction podcasts, and special recognition awards like Best Network or Rising Star. The highest honour of the night is the Podcast of The Year, which will be chosen by the judges from Gold winners across other categories that night.
Entries are charged at standard prices, which vary depending on the individual or company’s annual turnover, starting from £130 + VAT for companies under £100,000, to £260 + VAT for those over £250,000.
For podcasters that need more advice or guidance on how to enter, PodPod recently released an audio miniseries with editor Adam Shepherd and the co-founders of the British Podcast Awards Matt Deegan and Matt Hill with advice on how to win a British Podcast Award.
