The International Women’s Podcast Awards is set to make its return this year on Wednesday, June 19th 2024. This event, now in its 4th year, will take place at the IET London: Savoy Place with an accompanying global livestream, bringing together podcasters, audio professionals, and podcast enthusiasts to celebrate the remarkable achievements of women and people of diverse genders in podcasting.
The International Women’s Podcast Awards recognises and honours the outstanding contributions made by a wide range of folks in the podcasting sector, from those who are self-taught and producing shows solo to those part of larger teams at established audio companies. From thought-provoking discussions to engaging storytelling, podcasts have become an influential medium, and it is essential to acknowledge the incredible range of voices and talent involved in the creation of these productions, both behind the mic and behind the scenes.
This year’s event will showcase the remarkable work and creative excellence of podcasters across multiple categories. From educational and informative shows, to captivating storytelling, the International Women’s Podcast Awards will recognise the best in the business. A panel of judges consisting of podcasters, journalists, and experienced professionals will evaluate the submitted entries and select the winners across multiple categories.
“We are thrilled to announce the date and venue for this year’s International Women’s Podcast Awards,” said Naomi Mellor, the founder of the awards. “Podcasting is a powerful medium that provides a platform for people to tell their story, showcase their work, and have their voice heard. Our goal with these awards remains to raise the voices of women and people of diverse genders in podcasting, to bring together the podcasting community, and to celebrate the exceptional work being done worldwide. We encourage all podcasters to submit their entries and be a part of this event. The IWPA Bursary will also once again be open, offering complimentary entries and tickets to anyone, worldwide.”

About the International Women’s Podcast Awards:
The International Women’s Podcast Awards is an annual event that recognizes and celebrates the incredible moments of podcasting brilliance created by women and people of diverse genders worldwide.
By acknowledging their influential work in podcasting across various genres, the event aims to empower and amplify these voices in the industry.
The joy of podcasting lies in the intimacy of the listening experience, in the atmosphere created between the host, guest and listener, and in the moments of incredible sensitivity, humour or honesty that keep people engrossed. The International Women’s Podcast Awards celebrate these intimate moments of podcasting brilliance, and the women and folk of diverse genders that make them happen.
The IWPAs is unlike other awards. It doesn’t matter what genre your podcast is, or how many downloads the work has had. It’s about the quality, and how it makes the listener feel.
