Before 2017 comes to a close, we have some important announcements to make about the Australian Podcast Awards. #AustraliaListens2018.
We are headed to the city of Melbourne in 2018, and are super excited to have the awards than the Melba Spiegeltent! Home to Circus Oz, it was originally built in Belgium in 1910 before finding its Australian residence in Collingwood in 2006. We can't wait to see it packed in May for Australian podcasting's night of nights.
The 2018 Australian Podcasting Awards on 5th May will sell out quickly, so get ready to buy your tickets when they go on sale. We've created a waitlist for you to sign up to, so you can be the first to know about tickets before they are made available to the general public.
A STELLAR YEAR FOR AUSTRALIAN PODCASTING
2017 was a monumental year for Australian podcasting. Not only did we have our first national awards in April, but the ABC, Audiocraft and We Are Podcast continued running fantastic events to inspire us and bring the community closer together. Podcast Meetup groups have been thriving in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and the Australian Podcasters Facebook group is nearing 500 members.
Thank you to everyone who has made 2017 a great year for Australian podcasting, and a big salute to those continuing to podcast over the holidays, helping their listeners stay sane. Here's to an even bigger and better year in 2018.
