The NZ Podcast Awards return for 2023, entries open

From behind the mic, to centre stage, it’s time to get your entries in for the 2023 New Zealand Podcast Awards, presented by Editor-in-Chief Duncan Garner.

Since its inception in 2021, the New Zealand Podcast Awards have grown, demonstrating the tremendous passion and dedication of the Kiwi podcasting community.

The Awards reach has expanded far and wide, engaging an audience of 1.5 million people in the first two years.

One of the highlights of the New Zealand Podcast Awards is the Listeners’ Choice award, where the podcasting community has the power to voice their support. In the past two years, there has been an incredible outpouring of enthusiasm, with over 40,000 fan votes cast for the Listeners’ Choice awards.

The 2023 edition will build on this incredible momentum, with more opportunities for podcasters to shine and a judging panel, comprising independent podcasters, as well as influential figures from the digital media industry in New Zealand and around the world.

As the Awards embark on its third year of celebrating the power of the Kiwi podcasting community, rova remains committed as the Principal Media Partner.

“At rova we’re creators, partners and lovers of local podcasts, we’ve been headline sponsors of the NZ Podcast Awards from day one and we’re proud to be supporting the celebration of the local industry for the third year running,” says Richie Culph, Head of Digital Audio, MediaWorks

The Awards welcomes other volunteers, media partners or brands who would like to join this year’s journey, and invite you to reach out to discuss opportunities.
