Entries invited for radio production awards competition

A DEADLINE of the 18th of next month has been set for an awards competition celebrating the best of radio production.

The fourth year of the Radio Production Awards are this year being sponsored by AudioGO, an audiobook publisher, retailer and distributor of downloadable radio programmes from both the BBC and independent production companies.

Says the Radio Academy, organisers of the competition: “These awards recognise and celebrate the work of UK-based radio and audio producers during the qualifying period, where other awards, like the Radio Academy Awards, tend to recognise programmes, stations and broadcasters. There is also a special category, the highly-prized Indie of the Year, which is open to companies large, medium and small that can demonstrate an exceptional year of production in relation to their size.

“Two new categories will also be introduced in 2013. The Production Hero Award, recognising exceptional achievements made over and above the call of duty in areas such as production management, research or technical support and the Gold Award, which will celebrate the achievements of an individual who has made an outstanding contribution, usually over a number of years, to radio production in the UK.”
