How do I enter my podcast in the awards?

Go to our submissions platform and take it from there!


How much does it cost to enter Cast Away?

Cast Away is free for podcasters to enter.


Can I submit more than one podcast?

If you have more than one podcast, you can enter them, but you can only submit one episode of each podcast, and you can't submit a single podcast (or episodes thereof) into more than one category.


Where can I find out more about entering my podcast?

Download our Terms & Conditions PDF. It has loads of info!


What are the judging criteria?

Cast Away's judging criteria will be guided by our overall set of values. More about this on our Judges page.


How can I buy a ticket to the event?

Tickets are not yet available, but will soon become available via a crowdfunding campaign Cast Away will be running.


Should I still come to the event if I'm not winning an award?

Firstly, what's with the defeatist attitude!? Who says you're not winning an award! And yes, of course you should be there! It's Australian podcasting's night of nights!
