Finalists announced for the 2019 Australian Podcast Awards

28 March 2019

Today is a big day for the Australian Podcast Awards, when they announce their finalists across 24 categories. Tickets for the awards are still on sale, so make sure you don’t miss out on a great opportunity to attend and be a part of history, as the industry recognises the creativity of podcasters from across Australia.

There are numerous podcasts in the list of finalists which deal with disability, diversity and inclusion, such as NOVA Employment’s podcast, Focus on Ability, which is a finalist in the category of Branded Podcast. Diversity Council Australia’s podcast, The Art of Inclusion, is a contender for the Acast Award for Diversity & Inclusion in Podcasting, where they focus on not just topics of race, gender or sexuality, but also disability and how people deserve to be treated.

However, it is not only these topics which are represented in the list of finalists for the Australian Podcast Awards. Many finalists have been drawn from the fields of literature, TV, sports, music, art, science, technology and lifestyle, among so many more.

With a wide array of quality programming in each category, the awards are sure to be a tightly fought contest between as many as eight different podcasts, vying to claim the honours as one of Australia’s finest. To find out more about the finalists, and the wide range of quality podcasts available, visit the APA website's newly launched finalists' page.
