The Skylark Collective has announced that Amazon Music and Wondery will be sponsoring this year’s International Women’s Podcast Awards. In addition to the sponsorship, Amazon Music and Wondery will launch a new initiative to further encourage diversity and inclusion in podcasting.
The Amazon Music and Wondery Awards Fund will provide complimentary tickets both for the in-person event at The Conduit, and the global livestream online – to those for whom costs would be prohibitive, and who would otherwise not be able to attend.
The fund launches on 1st August 2022 to coincide with the release of tickets for the event.
This year’s International Women’s Podcast Awards will be hosted by podcaster, writer and comedian Deborah Frances-White of The Guilty Feminist at The Conduit in London on Thursday 29th September 2022. The ceremony will be attended by a live audience in London, with a global livestream available for guests throughout the world to join us on the night. The category shortlists will be announced in early September.
Naomi Mellor, founder of the International Women’s Podcast Awards, said: “Last year’s event had a wonderful energetic, supportive atmosphere full of joy, laughter and support, and we’re delighted that with the support of Amazon Music, we can open the door to even more podcasters joining us either in London or online to attend this year’s awards. We are constantly striving at The Skylark Collective to support as many podcasters as we can, and to create a truly level playing field in this exciting and growing industry. The global podcasting family is a wonderful place where everyone should feel they belong. This partnership provides us with another excellent way of providing a means of facilitating that, and we can’t wait for this year’s event.”
