28th annual Webby Awards names LiSTNR as an honoree for best streaming service

LiSTNR has been named an Honoree by the judging academy at the 28th annual Webby Awards for Apps & Software – Best Streaming Service.


Earning the distinction of Webby Honoree, recognised by judging academy, the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, is a significant achievement and granted to only the top 25% of all work entered into the 28th Annual Webby Awards.

Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honour” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international awards organisation honouring excellence in digital media, content and innovation.

The Best Streaming Service category recognises mobile apps offering superior streaming services for audio and video content, including podcasts and radio; and filmed content, including music videos, news segments, television, sports, etc.

LiSTNR is Australia’s fastest growing digital audio destination, housing more than 900 podcasts, 100 Triple M and Hit radio stations, 25 music streaming stations, news, sport and information. It has nearly 1.9 million signed up listeners.

“Honorees like LiSTNR are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, President of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 13,000 projects we reviewed this year.”

SCA Executive Head LiSTNR Product & Strategy, Chris Johnson (pictured), said: “This is a great achievement for LiSTNR given it is up against some global competitors like Apple Music and Spotify and that the app is only three years old. The Webby Awards are the top global accolade for the internet industry, so it’s a fantastic recognition for the entire LiSTNR team. We have recently launched our most significant app update since LiSTNR’s launch with new features, a new design and improved user experience, which has been really well received, so we are expecting big things for the next Webbys.”
