Organisers of the European Podcast Awards are looking for nominations for this year’s competition, with a closing date in January 2013.
Sponsored by Olympus Audio Systems, the EPA sees producers of podcasts and web radio shows from across 10 countries in Europe compete firstly for domestic acclaim, followed by a ‘podcast of podcasts’ shootout with European winners in each of the four categories: Personality, Non Profit, Business and Professional.
Nominations – from producers and host themselves, or from their listeners – are now being accepted for the 2012 European Podcast Award. The only condition of entry is that you must have an RSS feed populated with at least 3 episodes in MP3 format and each produced in 2012.
Dave Thackeray, ‘The Podcast Guy’ and UK Ambassador to the European Podcast Award, told RadioToday.co.uk: “The European Podcast Award is now a well-established gong and is well-respected having been sponsored for four years by Olympus. Web radio and podcasting is fast becoming a fantastic outlet for every independent radio producer, with the ubiquitous availability of devices that allow millions in the UK alone the chance to listen to much more than just terrestrial radio.
“Our judges come from every corner of the industry and winners in past years have run the gamut of styles and themes. 2012 promises to offer a greater array of choices than ever – but you need to be quick to make sure you’ve got the best chance of winning.”
Nominees have until mid-January to get their listener communities voting for them. See more at european-podcast-award.eu.
