The Podcast Awards 2007 kick off today.
The contest – the third annual such event – is designed to recognize the best podcasts, as voted by listeners, in 23 different categories.
Today’s first phase is a call for nominations where you can nominate your favourite podcast in each of those categories. Full details on the nomination and voting procedure are in the contest rules.
We – that’s Shel and Neville – would be highly chuffed if you were to nominate our podcast, For Immediate Release: The Hobson & Holtz Report, in the Business category.
- Go to PodcastAwards.com, click on the Nominate Now link and go to the Business box
- In the Podcast Name field, type: For Immediate Release
- In the Podcast URL field, type: http://www.forimmediaterelease.biz/ (easier: right-click that link, choose ‘copy shortcut’ and then ctrl-V to paste it into the field)
- Scroll down the page and complete the ‘Your Details’ section
- Click ‘Submit’
You have until 23:59 Hawaii time on July 15 (that’s 09:59 GMT on July 16) to submit all your nominations. Make sure you read and understand the rules.
Following the close of nominations, a 7-10 day review period will take place where every nominated podcast is reviewed by the contest organizers. Once the short lists of nominations have been decided, actual voting will begin. The organizers plan to award all prizes at the third annual Podcast and New Media Expo in September.
Thank you if you do nominate and vote for FIR!

Another new word for me to use: “chuffed.” Though I fear it may generate some odd looks in my direction here in the States.
Heh! You’re probably right, Chip.
Here’s a pretty accurate definition –
Done and done.
Btw – Down Under folk are pretty familiar with chuffed.
