This year, there are several new categories that have been added including Best Child Voice, Best Teen Voice, Best Foreign Voice and Best Voice Team. Each category has its own judge, ensuring that seasoned industry personalities who specialize in their respective award category are judging the finalists.
Similar to awards such as the Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, honoring actors and filmmakers, the Voicey Awards recognize voice actors and voice talents for their contributions and efforts over the year in the voice over industry.
Voice talents and voice actors are hired for their vocal talents to complete various projects for organizations, companies, and institutions requiring voice over services including commercials for radio and television, promos, movie trailers, audio book narration, podcasts, videos, animation, videogames, telephone recordings and more.
