The Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame was started in 2015 to honor those who paved the way for podcasters, and the podcast industry, of today. Since then, there have been almost 20 individuals who have been inducted into the Podcasters Hall of Fame. You can help decide who will be inducted this year.
Podcast Movement 2018 will be continuing the tradition of inducting podcasters into the Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame. The podcast community plays a meaningful role in who will be inducted into the this year’s Hall of Fame class of 2018. Nominations are open now, and will end on February 28, 2018.
The podcaster you nominate must meet all of the following criteria:
- Have been involved with podcasting for at least 10 years, either as a podcaster or an active member of the podcast industry.
- Have promoted the art of podcasting over those 10 years.
- Done things to make podcasters better off because of their contributions and involvement.
- Be thought of highly by their podcasting peers.
There is a form you must fill out in order to make a nomination. Again, all nominations are due by February 28, 2017.
The form asks for your email address, your name, and the name of the person you want to nominate. It also asks you to provide a link to the person’s personal or company website, and to their podcast (if applicable). Be prepared to list how long that person has been in podcasting. Provide the Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame with details about why you think that person belongs in the Hall of Fame.
The top six nominees will be announced as the 2018 Class of the Podcast Hall of Fame. This year, the Hall of Fame Ceremony will be its own event, taking place on Monday, July 23, the night before Podcast Movement kicks off.
