Calibre Audio Awards


This year we were very excited to launch the first ever Calibre Audio Awards, honouring the best audiobooks added to Calibre's collection in the last 12 months. With categories that showcase the variety of titles available and the deserving winners determined by a combination of listener figures, our highly knowledgeable Editorial team and putting it to the vote, we are now delighted to share the results.

A special thank you to Kim Ismay, who when she's not treading the boards of the West End is one of Calibre's very own volunteer narrators, for recording our fabulous winners announcement:
