The Audie Awards are the most prestigious award of the audiobook world, awarding the talented voices behind your favorite listens across 25 categories. Congratulations to all the winning authors, narrators, and publishers of the 2022 awards!
Notice a few missing audiobooks from our list? Unfortunately, quite a few of these listens are exclusive to Amazon’s Audible and barred from being sold through bookstores or loaned out through libraries.
Learn more on our blog about Amazon’s harmful practices with Audible exclusives, as well as through the American Booksellers Association’s white paper detailing Amazon’s anti-competitive behavior. If you’re an author, we encourage you to utilize Fight for the Future’s “Who Can Get Your Book?” tool to learn about the accessibility of your books.
