Black Podcast Awards will be Online September of 2020

Black Podcasting Awards will take place online on Sunday, September 27, 2020, at 7PM EST. The decision to hold events online – instead of in person – is one that many podcasting event organizers are choosing in order to keep people safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Black Podcasting Awards tweeted (on June 12, 2020): “Please join us for the first Black Pod Awards ceremony. Broadcasting online LIVE! around the world. We will award over a dozen categories to our first year winners and feature special performances. Virtual seating is free with email signup. #blackpodcasts #bpa”

Black Podcasting Awards is a celebration of the ownership and creation of content for the black experience in the world of podcasting. Through a curated list of categories, we aim to elevate black voices within the podcasting network that may not receive the recognition they deserve. In a marketplace that often overlooks the unique voices and candor of black podcasters we are here to bridge the gap. Our mission is to amplify our own and celebrate those who have paved the way, as well as, provide a foundation for the up and coming voices in the black podcasting arena.
