Australian Podcast Awards 2018

Thursday 15 February, 2018

In its second year, the awards are back with a new name and new industry categories. 

The Australian Podcast Awards (formerly the Cast Away Australian Podcast Awards) will be held on 5 May 2018 at the Melba Spiegeltent in Melbourne.

The Awards are judged by a panel of podcast, radio and media industry professionals, including James Cridland, PodNews.Net; Kelly Glover, Talent Squad; Claudia Taranto, Radio National; and Sharon Taylor, CEO Omny Studio. 

Four new categories aimed at industry recognition will be on the list of 18 awards at this year's event. 

New categories announced include 'Contribution to Industry' and 'Australian Podcast Legend'. 

"I'm really excited about the new categories our judges will review this year," says awards founder Dave Gertler.

"Last year we had ten judged categories and one popular vote. We fielded entries from SBS, Mamamia, the Sydney Opera House, Fairfax and News Limited, as well as entertainers like Wil Anderson and Osher Gunsberg.

"This year with our new categories, we're not only looking at what podcasters themselves are doing, but exploring the industry that's forming around the medium in Australia."

Last year's winners can be viewed here, and entries can be made here
