PRESS RELEASE — December 10, 2019

Toronto ON, Canada—Nominations are now open for PODCAMP TORONTO’s third annual CANADIAN PODCAST AWARDS the only award show for outstanding podcasts produced by Canadian podcasters, editors, and producers.

“The Canadian podcast awards are an awesome way to showcase the deserving creators we have in this country and we are excited to be seeing a lot of growth in submissions and attention for the event in its third year. Giving recognition to podcasters who are putting themselves out there to highlight and share their diverse voices, values and ideas is our way of contributing to the community,” said John Leschinski, Chair of Podcamp Toronto.

Winners will be announced at the 14th Annual Podcamp Toronto un-conference running from February 21st to the 23rd, 2020.

30 categories are open to nominations including Outstanding News & Current Affairs series, Outstanding Society & Culture series, Outstanding Documentary series and People’s Choice. Entries are free and open to podcasters from across the country who meet the eligibility criteria. Nominations close December 29, 2019.

Awards will be adjudicated by Canadian podcasters registered with the awards website. Podcasters are verified by the Podcamp Toronto Organizing Committee. Awards-round voting will be held between January 1 and February 18, 2020.

Eighty-eight podcasts were nominated for awards in 2019. Winners included Tai Asks Why, Overdue Finds, The AI Effect, and I Hate It But I Love It.

“We really appreciated being recognized by our fellow Canadian podcasters,” said Kat Angus and Jocelyn Geddie of I Hate It But I Love It, winner of Best Comedy Podcast, 2019. “It also helped introduce our podcast to people who hadn’t heard of us before. Podcasting is a labour of love, and is hard to do well even under the best of circumstances, so to share in the respect and enjoyment of other Canadian podcasts and podcasters is incredibly valuable. We’re so grateful to the Canadian Podcast Awards.”
