2nd Annual Signal Winners Announced!

Eligibility, Guidelines and Fees

So you want to enter the Signal Awards? Here are some helpful guidelines for making sure that the process goes off without a hitch.

Eligibility and Rules

The Signal Award Competition is open to all organizations and individuals involved in the process of creating, running, hosting, managing, maintaining, marketing or promoting podcasts. Entries do not, however, need to have been created this year. To be eligible for the current season, the work must have been originally published after September 2022, and be live and accessible upon entry. There is also no limit to the number of entries you may submit or the number of categories you may enter.

Unacceptable Material

Entries that contain pornographic material, propagate “hate” messages, make defamatory statements or that are otherwise extraordinarily offensive are not only uncool, they are also not eligible to win a Signal Award.


Ineligible entries may be disqualified at any phase of the competition without notification.

Acknowledgment of Entries

Entrants will receive an email acknowledgment when an entry has been received. If you do not receive an email, please contact Annalee Miller at annalee@signalaward.com

Terms and Conditions of Entry/Usage

The Signal Awards assumes all entries are original and the entrant either owns the work or has permission from a client or other appropriate party to enter the work, with all rights granted therein. In the event that an entrant without such rights submits an entry, the entrant will not be eligible for the competition. The Signal Awards are not liable for any copyright infringement on the part of the entrant.

Submission of any entry acknowledges the right of the Signal Awards to use it for exhibition, promotion and publication purposes in any medium, including but not limited to SignalAward.com, the Signal Podcast Directory, and other Signal Awards listening platforms. 

If an entry receives an award, the manner and details of announcing that nomination and award is strictly within the discretion of the Signal Awards. The entrant understands that all awards may not be given or publicized in the same manner and some or none might be presented in a ceremony and others might not.
