The 2019 Australian Podcast Awards will take place on Saturday 18 May, at the Seymour Centre.

Sydney will host the 2019 Australian Podcast Awards. Five months after the 2nd Australian Podcast Awards took place in Melbourne, Sydney’s iconic Seymour Centre has been named as the venue for the 2019 awards, which will take place on Saturday 18th May.

"The Seymour Centre is the perfect space for the 2019 event," says awards founder Dave Gertler, "Not only is it a lauded performing arts centre that many people are familiar with, but it's centrally located and super convenient for guests coming from interstate."

The Australian Podcast Awards will join the ranks of several mainstay festivals and arts programs that have chosen the Seymour Centre to showcase independent creators, including the Sydney Fringe Festival, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, the Sydney Writer's Festival and the Sydney Comedy Festival.

The 2019 awards ceremony will be in the Seymour Centre’s Everest Theatre, which has incredible acoustics, and is a perfect environment to showcase Australian podcasting achievement.

More details about the event will be revealed in coming months, and submissions for the 2019 Australian Podcast Awards open on November 1.
