Strong Manchester Women catch the eye of award judges

MIC Media, a Manchester podcast production and training company, founded by Hyde-based Vic Elizabeth Turnbull, has been nominated for a coveted British Podcast Award for their ‘Strong Manchester Women’ podcast production. The national accolades are the biggest and most recognised celebration of UK Podcasts in the country.

The Strong Manchester Women podcast tells the stories of fourteen inspirational women from across Manchester, who are making a positive difference and lasting impact in our communities. Each episode is an inspiring conversation with the changemakers, activists and trailblazers who make Manchester and beyond a better place to live, work and play; including champion boxer Stacey Copeland, 91 year old Pride of Manchester winning Gardener Dena Murphy, the Deputy Leader of Bury Council Lynne Ridsdale, Manchester International Festival performing poet Nasima Begum and Trans Creative Artistic Director Kate O’Donnell.

The podcast was commissioned by Manchester City Council and the Pankhurst Trust inspired by their annual campaign of the same name.

Vic’s over the moon at the national recognition for the podcast, she adds

“It’s such an honour to be included in such a stellar list of British Podcast Award nominated podcasts including BBC, The Guardian, David Walliams and Fern Cotton. But this nomination isn’t about me or my production company MIC Media. The nomination is an absolute testament to fourteen women that we featured in the Strong Manchester Woman podcast. They are absolute Queens and we hope that this accolade will help to amplify their stories and inspire more girls and women across the world to be strong.”

The winners are announced on Saturday 11th July. In the meantime, if you would like to vote for Strong Manchester Women in the People’s Choice category cast your vote here
