“I’m chuffed to bits and was honoured (and gobsmacked) to be up there with some of the world’s best voiceover talent. I’m still digesting it to be honest.”

After the ceremony the game’s creative director Neil Rennison, took to social media said this on Twitter: “This is truly amazing!! Congratulations to Julie-Ann – the soul of Arbitrix. She wouldn’t have been the same awesome, mischievous mechanical bird without you!”

The win was one of two nominations she earned at the 2019 SOVAS Voice Arts® Awards. She was also a finalist for the Best Voice-over in a Promo award, which was for a promo trailer she did for a children’s show called Baby Riki.
