PopCon was founded to celebrate all aspects of pop culture, rather than just hyper-focusing on a specific genre. Podcasters have just a few more days to submit their podcast to the 2017 PopCon Podcast Awards. The event takes place on July 7-9, 2017, in the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
PopCon covers gaming, comics, cosplay, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and more. They have a section that focuses on “Internet”. It is described this way:
The landscape of entertainment and pop culture is changing. Where previously a celebrity or star needed to be “discovered”, today’s new breed of celebrity simply needs the drive and motivation to self-publish. YouTube Star and Podcaster Extraordinaire are now legitimate titles for a business card.
Podcasters have just a few more days left to submit their podcast to the 2017 PopCon Awards. They are only accepting podcasts that are produced in the state of Indiana for this first awards ceremony. (The submission says: “Future years will likely extend beyond Indiana”.)
To submit a podcast, you must fill out the submission form. Chose which Podcast Category you believe best fits your podcast. PopCon might reassign or merge categories if existing submission pool warrants it to better facilitate an effective and entertaining award show.
Next, provide a short description of who you are as a podcast. This description will be used to describe your podcast at the ceremony. Provide a maximum of 15 minutes of your podcast in MP3 format, and give PopCon a link to your podcast’s website.
In addition, PopCon will have an Internet Alley which will feature podcasters, YouTube channel creators, and Twitch.tv streamers. Podcasters, YouTubers, and Twitch streamers will have an opportunity to participate in PopCon’s Live Podcast and Let’s Play stages. Read the PopCon website for information.
