Winners Announced for the 2018 Audio Production Awards


The winners have been revealed for the Audio Production Awards (APAs), the premier awards for off and on-mic production skills across radio, audiobooks and podcasts.


The APAs are sponsored by leading audiobook publisher Audible.


With blind judging being used to assess entries where possible, the winners represented a range of talent from across the UK. Overall 21 different independent production companies won a total of 32 awards, along with several national and local BBC stations, plus a range of grassroots and commercial broadcasters picking up awards. The freelance community was also well represented.


The special Gold Award went to Jez Nelson, co-founder of production company Somethin’ Else, and former pirate radio, BBC and now Jazz FM presenter, for his outstanding contribution to radio.


Trevor Nelson was awarded Gold for 'Best Presenter - Music'.
