Throughout 2017 and late 2016, the writescast had the privilege of hosting nearly two dozen wonderful guests, and earning the listenership of countless writers from the community across the globe. So now, as a way to say thank you for all of that engagement and support, it’s time to give back.
That’s why I’m proud to announce the first annual writescast awards.
What are the writescast awards, you ask? Let’s start by taking a guided tour of each award below.
Listeners’ Choice Award
From February 23rd to March 2nd, 2018, listeners will be able to vote for their favorite episodes of the show right here on rrcampbellwrites.com. Listeners interested in supporting their favorite guests and episodes will have no limit on the number of times they can vote, so vote early and vote often for the episode that you found most insightful, entertaining, or just happened to feature one of your friends or family members.
The voting window is only open from February 23rd to March 2nd, so get those votes in as early and often as possible! For the official announcement on the opening of the voting window, be sure to keep an eye on @iamrrcampbell and @writescast on Twitter.
Patrons’ Choice Award
Patrons of the writescast earn a number of awesome perks, one of which happens to be votes for the Patrons’ Choice Award in the annual writescast awards! For every dollar per episode a patron contributes to the writescast over at patreon.com/writescast, that patron earns a vote for their favorite episode of the show.
Interested in helping choose the winner of this one? You can become a patron to the writescast at this link!
Host’s Choice Award
As the host of the writescast, I’ve had an opportunity to interact directly with each guest. Every last one of them has left a fantastic impression, but I’d like to choose one (or two? or maybe even three?) whose commentary and insight I personally found especially engaging or useful.
So stay tuned! The winner’s of the Host’s Choice Award will be announced on March 3rd, the date of the official awards announcement.
Most Listened-to Episode
This one is (mostly) simple: the episode with the most listens between its debut and 11:59 p.m. CT on March 2nd, 2018 wins!
Of course, I don’t want to give an advantage to episodes that have been out in the world longer than others, so I’ve devised a formula that makes more recently-released episodes just as competitive as those that have been out for months!
To help your favorite episode win, all you have to do is listen in again as many times as you’d like: there’s no time like the present for a refresher on any of the great topics we covered in 2017.
The final date to make your listens count toward this award is March 2nd, so, just like the listeners’ choice award above, listen early and often to help support your favorites!
All episodes with a debut date of either late 2016 through December 31st, 2017 are eligible for this year’s awards. That is to say, episodes 001 – 027!
Announcement of Winners
What Do Winners Receive?
Winners and runners-up in every category will receive the following:
- Banners they can display on their websites and social media to promote their episodes as winners in their given categories
- Promotion from the writescast and on rrcampbellwrites.com that indicates their episode’s status as a writescast award winner
Thank you to all the show’s listeners and guests. The writescast would not be what it is today if it weren’t for your insight and engagement. I hope you enjoy showing your support for your favorite episodes throughout this event as much as I’ve enjoyed my role in bringing them to you.
