Welcome to the Independent Podcast Awards!


The Independent Podcast Awards are the brand new awards launched for those podcasts that are truly free of corporate ties. We’re taking things back to those who create their content in their backrooms, in their spare time and without the pressures of upsetting their sponsors along the way.

If you create a podcast but don’t think you have a chance of winning an award against some of the bigger players out there, then this is the place for you.

Whether you are talking about comedy, horror, sport, or focus on fiction then we want to hear from you.

Winners will not only win a national award as recognition for being at the top of their game, they’ll also win support services from our sponsors to help take their podcasts to the next level.

Our 2023 shortlist has been revealed!

We’ll be celebrating the nominees and winners in a laidback ceremony on the 30th October at Kings Place in London.
