CAROL STREAM, Ill., Feb. 24, 2020 — Oasis Audio, a leading independent audiobook publisher and a division of Oasis Family Media, has been recognized with three nominations from the Audio Publishers Association in the 2021 Audie Awards.

Oasis has received nods in the following categories:

The 2021 Audies saw more than 1,500 submissions in 25 categories. Winners will be announced during the 26th annual Audie Awards Gala, which will be held virtually on March 22. This year’s program will be hosted by John Leguizamo, with celebrity judges Jerry Craft, Melissa de la Cruz, Jennifer Egan, Tommy Orange, V.E. Schwab, and David Sedaris.

This marks the fifth consecutive year that Oasis Audio productions have been named Audie finalists.

Frankenstein: A Stage Adaptation by A.S. Peterson is Oasis Audio’s first nomination in the Audio Drama category.

“I couldn’t be more proud to see the Oasis name included among the Audie finalists yet again,” said Steve Smith, president and publisher of Oasis Family Media. “We’ve worked tirelessly to establish a reputation for excellence — in both content and production — and I think these titles are some of our best yet.”
