2016 proved to be a defining year for radio & audio. The year sound became sexy again. Podcasts were booming, radio exceeded audience expectations, streaming reached a critical mass and best of all, advertisers allocated a bigger slice of their marketing pie to audio.

So in typical audio fashion, we wanted to celebrate with a bang.

We've enlisted a panel of renowned Creative Directors from around the globe to rank the year's best work, showcased the branded podcasts that are blazing a trail for the medium and we salute the award shows that really take the audio category seriously. And if that's not enough, we've picked out the pieces of tech that are blowing our ears and our minds.
