Podcast Awards are a great way to build recognition and a respected profile for your podcast - but how do you enter them - and most importantly win one?
Joining us at MIC's Podcast Club in Feb is the co-founder of the British Podcast Awards Matt Deegan. He'll be chatting about how to enter the biggest celebration of British podcasts, top tips to get noticed by the judges and a look at previous winners.
After Matt, we have a chat with a panel of award-winning podcasters to explore how they went about entering and taking the crown at other podcast awards, as well as the BPA's. We'll also take a look at if having an award-winning podcast under your belt actually makes a difference. They'll be:
🥇 Frankie Tortora - Doing It For The Kids (Best Business Podcast, British Podcast Awards 2021)
🥇 Ian Sanders - Cold War Conversations (Best Arts & History Podcast, Quite The Podcast Awards 2021)
🥇 Charles Commins - It's All Cobblers To Me (Club Podcast of the Year, Football Supporters' Association Awards 2021)
We'll also have time for your questions for our guests too.
The QnA sesh is hosted by our Vic, who's been nominated for a few podcast awards and was a judge at last year's British Podcast Awards.
