The Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology is an annual multifandom anthology of podfic featuring fanfiction that centers on female characters. It is released every year as part of halfamoon. Every year's anthology is available as a podbook, a ZIP file, and a browsable list of individual podfic MP3s. Starting with the fifth edition in 2015, the podbook was split into two options: a lower-bitrate option with a smaller file size, and a higher-bitrate option with a larger file size.

The idea for the anthology was originally conceived by podklb, and the organizers over the years have been podklb (I-V), bessyboo (II-V), cantarina (II), and sophinisba (II).
