Some of you may remember that we were one of the finalists in the “Storyteller & Drama” category last year, which did lead to a lot more listeners — and some media attention. This year, we’re looking to get nominated in both that category and the new “Fiction” category.
But we need your help!
True to its name, the awards depend on nominations in all the categories — and to do so, you’ll need to register on their site. Once you’ve done that, you can nominate podcasts, including, we hope, Jabberwocky Audio Theater.
If we’re among the top 10 nominated podcasts in a category, we get into that coveted slate of finalists.
Then, in August, a random selection of the many thousands of the registered listeners vote on that final slate.
We were pleased to learn that Jabberwocky Audio Theater made the final nominee slate for the People’s Choice Podcast Awards in the “Storyteller – Drama” category.
For those of you who don’t know, these are among the oldest podcast awards out there (it’s their 15th year) and the competition to get into this final slate of nominees is fierce.
Out of 800 shows and close to 500,000 listeners across all categories, we made the cut. And I’m given to understand that there may have been as many as 50-60 podcasts angling for a nomination in the “Storyteller – Drama” alone.
So making the slate is an honor in and of itself.
Of course, some of you must know about the People’s Choice Podcast Awards, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been nominated.
BUT, the final voting is underway now through Sunday, September 13th, so if you haven’t voted already, you can register on their site and vote — and thank you for your support!
