NZ Podcast Awards are back
Entries for the New Zealand Podcast Awards 2022 are now open.
Presented by rova, the awards are set up to recognise the work of independent and professional Kiwi podcast producers across the country.
In 2021, nearly 200 podcast submissions were received, along with 17,000 votes for the Listeners Choice award.
The categories have more than doubled from 12 to 29, with most to be judged by digital media industry leaders from New Zealand and around the world, including some of the earliest AU/NZ employees of Google, YouTube, TikTok and Spotify as well as entertainment powerhouse CAA.
The Awards have been created as an independent and neutral platform to support the entire podcasting industry in New Zealand, from large publisher and radio networks through to emerging and established independent podcasts.
Richie Culph, Head of Digital Audio, rova & Podcasts for MediaWorks says “As fans and supporters of local podcasts, we were privileged to have the opportunity to support the launch of the awards last year, and we’re proud to once again support the celebration of our local podcast industry.”
