Congratulations to the Listening Library and Jim Dale!
Jun 09, 2004
Listening Library received 3 “Audie Awards” for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling read by Jim Dale. The awards were for Package Design, Children’s Title for Ages 8+ and, most importantly, it won Audiobook of the Year.
Random House tells us that the Audiobook of the Year Award (the first one ever) was selected by a “Blue Ribbon” panel of judges who reviewed entries on the basis of “excellence in production quality; compelling packaging and overall design; marketing campaign support; suitability of format and inspired narration; marketplace response to the product; and how the product advances the role of audiobooks.”
