A select group of some of the biggest names in sports podcasting kick things off by shortlisting the contenders for each category, in the presence of our independent adjudicator.
Then it’s the turn of all our podcasters. We’re looking to recruit hundreds if not thousands of you to become official judges.
All you need is your own active podcast and to respond to our Call for Judges when it goes live in the next few months.
Being a Sports Podcast Awards judge isn’t just your opportunity to listen to and vote for the world’s best, it’s the way to get your own podcast on our website with a link that lets the whole world hear what you have to say. When this happens, you’re part of a global sports podcasting community that never previously existed. If people hadn’t heard you before, they will now.
As a listener, you can have your say too. You can vote for your favourite podcast in every category.
And while your vote is only worth 20% of an official judge’s vote, the Listeners’ Choice Award is entirely down to you. It can go to any podcast that enters the awards, whether it makes a shortlist or not. As soon as the votes start coming in, you can watch the drama unfold on our live web leaderboard.
Finally, it comes to this. Who will be crowned the new undisputed heavyweight champion of the word?
The winners of each category battle it out for Sports Podcast of the Year, as chosen by the Awards’ very own star-studded Advisory Board.
