Have you been wondering who the judges will be for the 3rd Annual Voicey Awards?

Wait no longer!

I am going to reveal six of the nine to you today.

Judges for the 3rd Annual Voicey Awards

This year, I'm pleased to announce that we'll be joined by a number of exceptionally talented individuals.

Here's a little bit about each confirmed judge and their award category, in no particular order:

๏ 7-time Academy Award announcer, voice of Entertainment Tonight and The Insider, and co-author of Voice For Hire, Randy Thomas, will be judging the award category for Best Male Voice.

๏ New York City casting director and author of Acting: Make It Your Business, Paul Russell, will be judging the award category for Best Female Voice.

๏ Abrams Artists Agency NYC Super Agent Billy Serow has stepped up to judge the category of Best New Voice.

๏ Singing voice of Snow White and female movie trailer voice over trailblazer, Melissa Disney, will be judging for this year's Best Teen Voice award.

๏ British voice over coach and talent Gary Terzza is judging the Best Foreign Voice category and is the first-ever Voicey judge from across the pond.

๏ Mitch Joel, president of Canadian marketing agency Twist Image, will be judging Best Personal Branding.

As the days go on, more information will be shared about the Voiceys and other judges as they are confirmed.

If you've entered yourself or nominated a voice actor so far, thank you for being part of this exciting event!

Best wishes,

      Thanks Peter :)

      Both David and I are very excited to have Mitch on board. We'll be seeing him hopefully at PodCamp Toronto (and I hope you'll be there, too!).

        That is an impressive panel you have put together there Stephanie. Congrats!

        It is especially great to see Randy Thomas as the judge for Best Male. She is easily the most talented voice in the business and a poet and scholar as well.

        Quite attractive too.
