How To Nominate For Podcast Awards
A podcast is a series of audio or video files that Internet users can download. For users to download these files, they need to install podcatcher on their computer. This software allows users to get updates and download subscribed podcasts. Due to the growing popularity of podcasting, Podcast Awards was created.
Podcast Awards or People’s Choice Podcast Awards is an annual award show in which podcasts compete in different categories. The first award show was held in 2005. Some of the awards categories are people’s choice, business, comedy, sports, political, podsafe music and more. If you love listening or watching podcasts, you can nominate your favorite podcast for the Podcast Awards. There are rules that you need to follow for the nomination. You can only nominate once so make sure to pick the best among your favorites. Also, the podcast can only be nominated in one category except for people’s choice or best produced. For instance, you nominate a podcast under comedy. You can’t nominate it on other categories like drama or business, but it can still be nominated for people’s choice or best produced. You will be asked to provide some information when nominating, including the podcast name and its URL, your name and e-mail address and comments. Make sure to use a valid e-mail address for the nomination process because a verification e-mail will be sent to you to ensure that it’s a valid address. Increase the chance of your favorite podcast to get the award by telling why you think it deserves to win. Once nomination period is done, a review committee will check all podcast nominations and based on their guidelines, the top 10 podcasts on each category will compete for the awards. Users can vote for their favorite podcasts only once a day. Voting lasts for 15 days.
The total vote is only 40% of the criteria for judging nominated podcasts. There are other factors considered by the judges that make up 60% of the criteria. The winners will be awarded on the Podcast Awards ceremony.
