Vision Australia Radio Partnership Announced

The Australian Podcast Awards are proud to welcome Vision Australia Radio as a media partner for our 2019 event. VAR will be providing promotional support to the Australian Podcast Awards and its winner across stations in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Regional Victoria, as well as on their digital channels.


"Organising the Australian Podcast Awards has helped me understand how podcasting plays a huge part in the lives of Australians who are blind or vision impaired," said awards Founder Dave Gertler, "The people at Vision Australia Radio have been providing this important service since well before podcasting even existed."

The Vision Australia Radio Network incorporates ten community radio stations across Victoria, southern New South Wales, Adelaide and Perth. As well as five digital radio services available in the three metropolitan areas, VAR also produce and publish a wide variety of regular podcasts found here.

“Making content more accessible for the blind and low-vision community is what we constantly strive to do,” Conrad Browne, Vision Australia Radio and Audio Services Manager, says, “And having our specialty content available on our podcast service means that programs are available on demand where our audience wants them and when they want them.”

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Australia Podcast Awards into the future as we too want to celebrate the contribution the wider community makes to a platform that enriches the lives of our community in a way that other mediums can’t.”
