For the second year in a row, the Mormon FAIR-Cast has been nominated to receive a Podcast Award in the “Religion Inspiration” category. The People’s Choice Podcast Awards are an annual set of awards given to the best podcasts as voted on by listeners. This year, over 9 million votes were cast and over 5,000 shows were nominated over the 15 day nomination period. Ten shows were chosen as nominees in each of 22 different categories. The Podcast Awards Ceremony will be held at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas on Jan 7th, 2013!
How was the Mormon FAIR-Cast Nominated?
Nominations were open for 15 days in October. Podcasts that received votes were reviewed by a 44 member committee that took a variety of factors into account. The total number of votes a podcast received accounted for only 40% of the grading, with the quality of the website’s design (15%), quality of sound (15%), quality of deliverance and show format (10%), and relevance of content (20%) also being considered.
Voting for the awards will begin today, November 1st and will end on November 15 at 11:59pm HST. While a single person could only cast one nominating vote, during final voting, each person (verified by IP address) may vote once each day during the 15 days that voting is open. In other words, a single person can cast 15 votes.
