This year’s Australian Podcast Awards has seen a record number of entries from award hopefuls in 2021 with thousands of individual entries recorded across the country.
A state-based analysis of entries reveals Tasmania and The Australian Capital Territory more than doubled their entries whilst New South Wales saw a huge 40% increase, making them the fastest-growing podcast regions.
Director at the Australian Podcast Awards, Matt Deegan, says,“It’s incredible to see Australian podcasting go from strength-to-strength, year-on-year. What started as a niche medium has now grown at scale, with many Australian podcasts leading the way when it comes to both content and audience reach.”
“We’re thrilled that we have once again recorded a record year of entries to the Australian Podcast Awards – a true testament to the great breadth of podcasting talent and content here locally.”
Finalists for the Australian Podcast Awards, powered by Acast, will be selected by a judging panel of industry experts and announced on Friday 29th October.
This will allow time for public voting for the Listeners Choice Award, supported by LiSTNR, before the category winners are announced in early December.
