The Australian Podcast Awards inspire and motivate podcasters, bringing them together to celebrate their achievements and find ways to help Australian podcasters reach wider audiences

We are the annual celebration of all forms of Australian podcasting

Every year, we cater to the diverse and rapidly expanding Australian podcast industry by awarding achievement in a carefully chosen set of podcast categories, using an expert-led robust judging process, and culminating in an event that celebrates the community and brings everyone closer together.

In 2020 partners included Acast, Omny Studio, iHeart Podcast Network Australia, Spotify, Nova Entertainment & more

In 2020 we expanded the scope of our event beyond a single awards ceremony, with consumer newsletters, viral Listeners’ Choice Award and a podcast conference - Podcast Day 24.

Sponsorship opportunities range from category naming rights, to naming rights over different aspects of the event, as well as the entire event itself.

  • Sustained exposure for your brand to thousands of podcast producers via our newsletter, website, awards submission process, and social media channels
  • Engage influencers around targeted genres such as sport, business, arts & entertainment, current affairs and more
  • Engage with Australia's best podcasters and media producers at our gala ceremony
We engage podcasters via social media, newsletter, website and submissions platform. Our community ranges from independent podcasters, to experienced broadcast/network teams.
