The voice over industry honors its own on February 21, 2008 -- be sure to catch the ceremony on the VOX Talk Podcast.
The Voiceys is the event of the year celebrating the achievements of the voice over industry and the voice actors who step up to the microphone every day.
Join us all on February 21st, 2008 for the 2nd Annual Voicey Awards.

Within the space of a year, the Voiceys have gone from five categories to nine, and three judges to ten. The nominations also increased exponentially in 2008 totaling 517 individual nominations for voice actors.
Suffice to say, that's a lot of growth in a short period of time, but in all reality, hasn't the voice over industry grown in leaps and bounds in a relatively brief number of years, too?
The 2008 Voicey finalists were absolutely dynamite, giving more than a few judges several sleepless nights.
That's an incredible compliment paid to all who will be honored this year and a testament to the continued and passionate pursuit of excellence in voice acting.
Judges for the 2nd Annual Voicey Awards
To remind us all, the judges participating this year in the 2nd Annual Voicey awards are Sunday Muse (Best Child Voice), Cynthia SongÃ© (Best Teen Voice), Joan Baker (Best New Voice), Julie Williams (Best Personal Branding), James R. Alburger and Penny Abshire (Best Voice Team), Bettye Zoller (Lifetime Achievement), Elena Valenzuela (Best Foreign Voice), Marc Cashman (Best Female Voice) and Connie Terwilliger (Best Male Voice).
Through the support, involvement and guidance of industry experts, winning a Voicey Award has become a coveted, sought after accolade for voice actors.
We couldn't do this without the industry judges and are heartily grateful for their desire to help us recognize voice actors for their contributions to voice acting and the elevation of the craft.
Thank you to all who nominated people this year for the Voiceys and for the believing in their talent.
