Our mission is to celebrate and honor the achievements of contributors to the podcast community.
A podcaster qualifies as a member of the Academy by either being an award recipient, being inducted into the Hall of Fame, or via appointment by the Board. To be appointed by the board, members must meet a certain set of criteria based on longevity in and contributions to the podcast community.
Members of the Academy all have the option to be voting judges in the annual Awards. However there is still a need to select additional judges to see that the winners are selected based on our thorough voting criteria. Voting judges are selected annually by the Board to supplement the member votes.
