Sports podcasters, is your show worthy of an award? Nominate it today for the first-ever Sports Podcast Awards.

Benchmark’s inaugural Sports Podcast Awards is accepting entries across 27 categories, including Sports Podcast of the Year, Listeners Choice Award, sport-specific awards, and podcast genre awards such as Sports Comedy, Sports Business, and Sports Documentary. All podcasts can enter, no matter how big or small. 

Entries are accepted in audio form. In 10 minutes or less, talk about your podcast and why it should win. The entry fee is $99 for professional producers or $50 for independents.

Short-listed award entries will be announced on podcast platforms and streaming services, and winners will be announced during a live-streamed awards event next February, Inside Radio reports.

The Sports Podcast Awards aims to celebrate the best that the global sports audio community has to offer by rewarding the best podcasters in the space, uniting the industry under one umbrella, and boosting discoverability for podcasters and listeners.
