We welcome all creators of podcasts to submit their work for our annual awards ceremony. In our first year, we limited the scope of the awards to only podcasts produced in Indiana. Now that we have our feet beneath us, that is no longer a criterion. IT IS FREE TO SUBMIT.

Please find submission criteria below:

    • Each Category will have 3 to 5 finalists.
      (We reserve the right to combine any categories together for the sake of less-applied-for category’s competition).
