The Australian Podcast Awards aim to inspire and motivate podcasters, bring 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.

The 3rd Annual Australian Podcast Awards will take place at Sydney’s Seymour Centre on May 18, 2019.

In 2019 we are expanding the scope of our event beyond a single awards ceremony, and will be incorporating afternoon forums leading up to the main awards event.

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


  • Visibility through social media sharing by our participants and attendees

  • Reach podcast listeners through podcasters mentioning your brand in association with the awards on their podcasts, digital channels and social networks

  • Potential viral reach via name association with announcements of winners and finalists, people’s choice voting, and naming rights of major prizes

  • Sustained exposure for your brand to thousands of podcast producers via our newsletter, website, awards submission process, and social media channels

  • Engage influencers around a niche industry such as sport, business, technology, arts & entertainment, video games, health & lifestyle

  • Engage with several hundred of Australia's best podcast and media producers at our awards event in 2019

Buzz around the awards grows in the months leading up to our event, when the Australian Podcast Awards gains national exposure, including major broadcast and print media.

We engage podcasters via social media, newsletter, website and submissions platform. Our community ranges from independent podcasters, to experienced broadcast/network teams.
