About the Irish Podcast Awards

The Irish Podcast Awards is dedicated to celebrating brilliant Irish podcasts. Whether you make your show in the kitchen or you’re a charity, a production company, a broadcaster, a publisher or even an Instagrammer, we’re here to champion great shows and help them grow their audience.

The IPAs judges will be from across the Irish audio and media sector and podcast companies from across the world. We’re an independent awards, not aligned to any particular company, and will treat everybody the same.

The IPAs work closely with the British Podcast Awards and Australian Podcast Awards to share best practice, and all have similar aims to grow awareness of podcasts from their home countries.

We’ll be opening up for entries on the 11th April 2022, with nominees announced in August 2022 and a ceremony in Dublin in scheduled for 16th September 2022.

As well as our main judged awards, we’ll also have the Listeners’ Choice category – a free public vote – where listeners can vote for any Irish podcast.
