'As podcast creators and superfans we think it's incredibly important to celebrate our local and independent voices, so when rova was asked to support the first NZ Podcast Awards, it was a no brainer' 

Richie Culph - rova Content Director

Gold Partner

“At its heart, Acast is a creator-first business. Our scale and independence within the open podcasting environment means creators have access to the tools they need to develop and grow valuable listener relationships, while maintaining complete creative control. It’s for this reason that supporting independent creators will always be important to us. 

Being involved in the New Zealand Podcast Awards and specifically, the Acast Best Independent Podcast Award is a great opportunity for us to recognise the amazing work being done by Kiwi creators, both locally and abroad. 

Henrik Isaksson, Managing Director, Acast Australia and New Zealand said,

It’s no secret that the podcast industry is booming and the New Zealand market is no different. Much-loved hosts such as Urzila Carlson (That’s Enough Already) and Tim Batt and Guy Montgomery (The Worst Idea of All Time) are doing amazing things with quality content, so now is the perfect time to celebrate our growing industry and the creators that are powering that growth.”
