Podcasts can be listened to almost anywhere and also in the background – no other medium offers this combination." Universities, institutes and associations in particular have realised this and are already reaping the benefits.

Votes for the award can be cast online for all podcasts nominated at As an extra incentive, voters will have the opportunity to win a brand new Olympus-LS-10 high-end PCM recorder, which is already being named the "pocket studio" and has wowed audio experts around the world.

Awards will finally be given to the podcasts by a panel of experts, who will be judging the candidates on content, creation, continuity and presentation.
