*The 2021 Audio Production Awards are now open!* 

We are delighted to announce that the 2021 Audio Production Awards will take place on the 24th November 2021, at the BFI.

Welcome to the Audio Production Awards! We created these awards to celebrate the very best in radio and audio production, reflecting the different skills and wide range of genres out there. 

Whether you’re a sound designer specialising in documentary, a live sports producer or anything in between, these awards are a chance for you to have your expertise recognised. 

We’ve been running the awards since 2010, originally as the Radio Production Awards (RPAs) and since 2016 as the APAs, and in that time the sector’s grown and changed enormously but what remains constant is it’s reflecting both new and upcoming talent and also those who have dedicated their careers to engaging audiences. 

Normally the event takes place at the end of November at a location on London’s South Bank. In 2020 this clearly wasn’t possible, so instead we held the awards as an online audio-only event.



The APSs are also committed to encouraging diversity in all of its forms and this very much feeds into how we plan our events and the judges we choose. You can find out more about AudioUK and diversity here.
