The awards ceremony, which celebrates women and non-binary voices across the industry, is taking place on 6 November at The Conduit in London’s Covent Garden. The event is hosted by female-led media company Everybody Media, co-founded by Naomi Mellor and Rebekah Pennington, and organised by The Skylark Collective.

Tickets to attend the ceremony cost £61, with drinks and light refreshments included, and livestream tickets cost £10. Bursary tickets, supported by Wondery and Amazon Music, are also available to apply for and are open to anyone worldwide who requires funding support to attend the event. Recordings of the ceremony will be sent out to ticket holders after the event ends.
Categories for this year’s awards recognise brilliance in podcasting, both on and off the mic, with awards like Moment of Behind-the-Scenes Brilliance, Moment of Comedy Gold, and Award For Changing The World One Moment At A Time. The full shortlist will be announced next week.
