The Skylark Collective has announced Shure, the leading global manufacturer of premium audio equipment, as headline partners for this year’s inaugural International Women’s Podcast Awards.
This unique event celebrates the best female-led moments in podcasting of the last year, where recognition is given to women in podcasting, both behind the mic and behind the scenes, who have created incredible audio moments and intimate listening experiences.
Naomi Mellor, founder of the International Women’s Podcast Awards, said: “I am so excited to announce Shure as our Headline Partners for the awards.
“Their passion for creating great microphones and audio electronics has been recognised by podcasters the world over, making them a staple of the podcasting community. Their support for women and non-binary podcasters at the International Women’s Podcast Awards helps us provide an opportunity for women from all over the world to showcase their work, and we can’t wait to bring the event to life.”
Paul Crognale, Senior Manager, Global Marketing at Shure added: “We are extremely proud to partner with The Skylark Collective for the first ever International Women’s Podcast Awards, championing inspirational voices from around the world.
“In supporting the podcasting community since the beginning, we’ve witnessed the importance of diversity to leverage creativity in the industry. For this reason, we are sponsoring the Award for Changing the World One Moment at a Time, which we believe will give women and non-binary podcasters the visibility and recognition to continue their impressive work, while inspiring the podcasters of tomorrow.”
The International Women’s Podcast Awards will be hosted at the Allbright in London on 23 September by presenter, author and journalist Vick Hope of BBC Radio 1, with additional support from Acast, Blubrry, Captivate FM and Redhead PR. The ceremony will also be live-streamed internationally.
The International Women’s Podcast Awards aims to help level the playing field for women in the industry, by rewarding and elevating the unsung podcast hosts, editors, producers and writers out there whose work deserves recognition.
