The 15th Annual Podcast Awards Nominations Open July 1st

The 15th Annual People’s Choice Podcast Awards will be opening nominations on July 1, 2020. The Podcast Awards have been honoring podcasters since 2005. Those who want to participate need to register their podcast before July 31, 2020.

It is recommended that podcasters read the new rules for 2020. Some changes have been made that Podcast Awards hopes will create an opportunity for more shows to win a podcast award.

Nomination Rules and Eligibility:

  •  Any show podcasting on or before July 1, 2020, with a minimum of 10 published episodes is eligible to register and be nominated for the 2020 Podcast Awards.
  •  Legacy Shows as listed on the Legacy Page are not eligible to win a category podcast award. If a legacy show has not yet won a People’s Choice Podcast Award the show will be automatically registered to participate in the People’s Choice Category.
  •  All registered shows will automatically be nominated in the People’s Choice Category. Any show wishing to be eligible to be nominated can register via the registration page until the nomination closing date and pay via PayPal the $25 registration fee.
  •  Shows that do not register are not eligible to participate. The registration fee is non-refundable.

The 2020 registration window began on February 1, 2020, and ends on July 31, 2020. Podcasters should be aware that the Listener Nomination period opens July 1 and your show will not be added or shown on the nomination page until you register.

Allowed Activity: Podcasters can and should provide instructions in their shows and on their sites instructing their audiences on how to register and nominate their podcast.

Forbidden Activities: Expressly forbidden are automated program, web assist templates that interact with the Podcast Awards site, web overlays, borkmarklets; and no nomination tool or macro is allowed. The podcast committee reserves the right to revise and amend any forbidden activity details at any time throughout the awards process.
