About

The Audio Verse Awards are an annual awards show dedicated to celebrating the best in free audio drama around the world.

It started as a thread on Audio Drama Talk, ballooned to a Facebook group, then shrunk to a dedicated group who sat down and helped make the Audio Verse Awards a reality in 2013. You’ve probably read a post, or this page, which these awesome people have coded, written, or put shiny graphics on.

WHO’S RUNNING THIS THING ANYWAYS?

The Audio Drama Awards is staffed by a board currently consisting of the following members, and headed by a chairperson.

2015 Audio Verse Awards Team

Landon Beall

When he’s not making sure the website is working, Landon can be found baling hay, rassling cattle, feeding the chickens, directing the Pendant Shakespeare, writing for Voco-Loco, or talking about how awesome Myst is.

Colin Kelly

Stepping up to bat as Chair in 2014, Colin usually can be found answering his numerous e-mails, tweeting about the number of e-mails he has, taking a break from answering e-mails to eat and sleep, or writing Seminar, Quick Audio, or any other things he won’t shut up about.

Jordan J. Scavone

When the Audio Verse Awards needs an injection of optimism, Jordan’s your man. When anyone on the team needs a second opinion, Jordan’s your man. And when he’s not answering AVA emails, mixing Nominee Showcases, updating the list of nominees, or making sure our website is color blind friendly, he’s busy keeping WGA Productions marvelous.

Dan Whitelaw

The most patient and professional graphic designer we could find, Dan is constantly improving and creating better graphics for the website, or other media things. When he’s not being hounded to resize an image, Dan runs Madgeek productions, and it’s flagship show, BlueSky.

Former Team Members

Alex Gilmour

Alex was involved with the Audio Verse Awards decision making since its inception, serving through the 2013 and 2014 award seasons. Between juggling real life and answering emails with thoughtful optimism, he serves as head of production at Gypsy Audio.

Gwendolyn Jensen-Woodard

Gwendolyn served as AVA Chair during our first year, and assisted the team throughout the 2014 award season. When she’s not juggling a new book project, voicing a new character, or brainstorming a new idea for Alex to give his two pence on, she serves as Executive Producer at Gypsy Audio.
