Best Serialized Story (BSS)


The Best Serialized Story (BSS) category awards narrative audio stories that unfold over multiple episodes, chapters, or installments. Each part of the series must build on a larger narrative or concept — but this is open to the interpretation of the creator or creators.

For example, each episode in a series may explicitly build on what came before to create a single cohesive narrative arc; another serialized story may contain more disparate or conceptually linked parts that reflect a broader narrative or concept, like an anthology or a collection. Also eligible are limited series or single seasons of ongoing shows that are thematically linked in some way, or a limited series from an ongoing show whose format may not usually be serialized.

There is one award in this category.


The 2022 Call for Entries will open in Fall 2022.
