BLUE FALCONRY 

We are all respected personnel, so don't be a BF and try to rig the system. Ask your listeners to vote, but if you cheat, my team will know and reserve the right to disqualify any show.

PODCAST ELIGIBILITY

To ensure the validity of our podcasters, and to keep out "calls to action", we require all podcast applicants to be registered with Apple. Your show link will be required.

All shows must have a minimum of 10 published episodes.

Applicants must select the category used when registering with Apple. It will be verified, so if you want to change categories, you must first change with Apple.

MILSPOUSE

We appreciate the sacrifices you give as well and incorporated a place for you! While the main 19 categories are reserved for military members, you will have one award for the Top MilSpouse Podcast. When registering, select the main category you are in on Apple, followed by "MilSpouse" (i.e. Comedy - MilSpouse).

ADVERTISING

Podcasters can and should provide instructions in their show and/or on their sites requesting votes. After all, your listeners are voting! 

REGISTRATION PERIOD

Podcasters may register, free of charge, from May 1 - July 31. Only one registration will be allowed.

 

LISTENER VOTING  

Listeners may register and vote for a show in each category from August 4 - September 18. You will be notified prior to the voting start date.

TOP NOMINATION NOTIFICATION

On September 25th, the top 2 podcasts with the most listener votes, in each category, will be announced. These podcasters will be required to create a short acceptance video for use in the Award Ceremony. The video must be 90-second maximum, submitted no later than Oct 3rd. The video should be in mp4 or mov HD format @ 720 or 1080. It will be submitted by emailing to info@brokenjarhead.com.
