2021 Awards Supported By
podcasting moments worldwide
The joy of podcasting lies in its intimacy. In the atmosphere created between the host, guest and listener. In the moments of incredible sensitivity, humour or honesty that keep people engrossed.
The International Women’s Podcast Awards celebrate these intimate moments of podcasting brilliance, and the women that make them happen. You might not be the biggest name in podcasting, or have the largest audience, but if you’ve captured a delicious piece of audio that sums up you, your guest or your audience to perfection, we want to know about it.
Our awards recognise the work of those who identify as women or non-binary both behind the mic and behind the scenes, from podcast hosts and writers, to editors and producers.
Every woman in podcasting deserves the opportunity to be seen, heard and applauded, so entry to the International Women’s Podcast Awards is open to anyone involved in podcasting who identifies as a woman or non-binary.
Nominations for the 2021 awards were accepted in eight categories of ‘Moments’:
- Moment of Comedy Gold
- Moment of Raw Emotion
- Moment of Cliff-hanger Drama
- Moment of Touching Honesty
- Moment of Entrepreneurial Inspiration
- Moment of Badass Business Advice
- Award for Changing the World One Moment at a Time
- Moment of Behind-The-Scenes Brilliance
(We may switch this up in 2022, so watch this space!)
You don’t need to be a stand-up comedian to produce a moment of comedy gold, or a broadcast journalist to produce a moment of cliff-hanger drama (although if you are, you are also welcome!) – whether you’re a new podcaster or a seasoned pro, we’d love to hear your work.
It also doesn’t matter what the format of your podcast is. You might write short monologues, conduct insightful interviews, produce a fantastic documentary series, write incredible stories or shoot the breeze with your co-hosts about topics that are important to you. We like to see variety in the entries we receive, and we love to hear the stand-out moments you’ve produced on your show.
These awards are for podcasts hosted or co-hosted by at least one person who identifies as a woman or non-binary.
The Moment of Behind-The-Scenes Brilliance category recognises the work of editors, writers and producers behind the scenes. If that’s you, or someone you know, we want to reward the unseen hard work put into many of the most successful and brilliant podcasts. In this category only, the podcast may be hosted by anyone, but the person nominated must be a woman, and must have been involved in the making of at least 5 podcast episodes, including the audio entered for the award.
Finally, and most importantly, you can nominate yourself. In fact, you SHOULD nominate yourself and your podcast. Women are notoriously bad at putting themselves forward, but go on…we’d love to hear from you!
