NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ahead of International Podcast Day, Black Podcasting Awards (BPAwards) bestowed 35 new awards to 29 different podcasts during a live stream from Podstream Studios on Times Square Sunday September 24. Black Love Inc. catapulted to BPAwards’ biggest overall winner to date with a grand total of 9 awards and 21 nominations; its Director of Podcasts Krystal Hill oversees these six BPAwards recognized podcasts, plus another two. She’s followed by Anna DeShawn who has five awards and six nominations for Queer News. While A’Shanti Gholar’s The Brown Girls Guide to Politics continues her four year stretch of nominations, plus three award wins.

Sunday’s Ophelia-delayed ceremony yielded six double award winners: Black is America (Editing; Sound Design), Black Love Podcast Network (Podcast Network; Producer), Every Voice with Terrance McKnight (Arts; Music), Mistakes That Made Me (Business; New), Parenting for the Culture (Education; Podcast of the Year), and Queer News (LGBTQ; Podcaster of the Year).

As podcasting continues to grow, the Awards went beyond U.S. borders, with a handful of winners hailing from Finland, Canada, and the U.K., proving that podcasting is indeed a global phenomenon. The list of awardees also include CNN journalist Audie Cornish, the multi-talented, award-winning Jill Scott, plus hip-hop legend and actor Method Man.

Ceremony guest Akilah Thompkins-Robinson, Girl Get Visible author and tech founder, noted “Black Podcasting Awards plays an important role in giving Black podcasters a space where they can be celebrated and showcased on a level playing field for their hard work and talent without other biases being a factor into how they are evaluated. It was an honor Sunday evening to see so many talented podcasters and podcast professionals be celebrated for their hard work in the podcast industry.”

The 2023 award ceremony and celebration was sponsored by Push Black, Podcast Movement, Blubrry, GSD Solutions, Gifted Sounds Network, LWC Studios, Podglomerate, Realm, Shure, Sounds Profitable, Stitcher Studios, Strike Audio, Sampson Therapeutic Services, and Transistor.

In addition to the coveted trophies, winning podcasters also receive fantastic prizes from Afros & Audio, Black Podcasters Association, Descript, Grants For Creators, and Hindenburg.

But the excitement doesn’t end here! For those aspiring to join the ranks of podcasting greatness, BPAwards is now hosting an International Podcast Day contest for a chance to win a Shure MV7 microphone and SRH440A headphones, or a one-year Hindenburg Pro license.
