The nomination period for the 2018 Discover Pods Awards will end on October 26, 2018, at 6pm ET. There is still time for you to nominate your favorite podcast by filling out a form on the 2018 Discover Pods Awards website.
Last year, the inaugural Discover Pods Awards, we received over 4,000 nominations and over 6,000 voted on the finalists. S-Town was the big winner taking home four trophies including Best Overall Podcast, Best Podcast Episode, Best New Podcast, and Best True Crime Podcast.
This year, they are adding new categories and changing things up a bit.
Everyone is free to nominate podcasts and episodes. There’s no charge to do so. Ballot stuffing is not allowed. Each email address only gets one nomination form – multiples get automatically deleted. Also, total nominations, while important are only one variable that will determine the finalists.
The Finalists will be announced on November 16, 2018. Discover Pods explains: “Together with a small group of fans and advocates, we’ll sift through the nominations and ultimately determine the podcasts selected for the final round of voting”.
After the Finalists are determined, there will be a Final Voting period starting on November 16, 2018, and ending on December 7, 2018. The 2018 Discover Pods Award Winners will be announced on December 10, 2018.
