Best Podcast

Whether publishing regular industry content or original journalism, we want to hear podcasts that give a unique insight into an aspect of architecture in ways that are fresh-sounding, personable and inclusive.

Outstanding entries in this category will include shows that reflect architecture’s diversity of ideas and give listeners fresh angles on the building and architects they love, with genuine and passionate presentation. They will also retain relevance with an audience beyond the week they were published. 

This category accepts entries from practices, individuals including professional journalists, online magazines and companies on condition that the main subject being discussed is architecture. 

The podcast must have had at least one episode recorded within 2019-2020.

Entry Fee: £50.00 + VAT


Engagement Does the podcast quickly engage and pull in its audience? Are there any relevant statistics to show plays, finishes or likes? Does the podcast have a regular release schedule?
Relevance Does the choice of subject make sense given its audience? Does it provide valuable content on a topic that the audience wants to know about? Is it enjoyable to listen to?
Clarity Is the tone focused and clear? Is the audio good quality? Is there a clear CTA to subscribe, follow or favourite?
