Best Voiceover

Ben McAuley – Winner of Outstanding Audio Description, Best Voiceover

I’m thrilled to report that on Sunday 19 December 2021, I won my third Voice Arts Award in three years in a ceremony held at The Guggenheim Museum in New York and live streamed across the globe. I received the award for Outstanding Audio Description, Best Voiceover. My winning narration was for an audio guide I voiced for the Pochet du Courval glass factory located in Guimerville in Normandy, which was produced by Voix Là.

These are the world’s most prestigious voiceover awards, so it was a glamorous night on the red carpet indeed. I was in the company of some of the best voice talent in the industry. It is truly an honour that the industry recognises the quality of my work. Other notable winners on the night included the cast of Disney Pixar’s Luca, Jamie Fox and Laraine Newman.

Back in 2019, I won the best voiceover award in the Outstanding eLearning category at the ceremony in Hollywood. Remarkably, I won the same category in 2020.

How my career began

It’s been a long journey to arrive at this point in my career. This began when I left the Leys School in Cambridge to study at Drama School in London. 

Following drama school, I appeared in several commercials and television shows. These included Eastenders, Casualty, The Bill and The Mighty Boosh. Then, in 1998, I began work as a presenter and reporter at BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. Here I honed my voiceover skills for 17 years, before launching my voiceover business full-time in 2015.

And how it’s going?

I now work from my home recording studio in Eltisley, just outside Cambridge. I provide voiceover services worldwide for a wide variety of projects, for example radio and television commercials, documentaries, corporate videos, eLearning programmes, audio guides, in-flight safety announcements, video games, theme park attractions and toys & apps. 

Ultimately, I’d love to work in major animation features and triple A videogames. But the variety in my day-to-day work is incredibly rewarding. I count myself very lucky that I’m able to do a creative job I love and be my own boss. It’s wonderful to bring people’s written words and characters to life.
