New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards now open for entries
Entries are open for New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards.
The International Radio Program Awards receives entries from radio stations, networks and independent producers from over 30 countries – with entries judged on production values, organisation, presentation of information, creativity and use of the medium.
The Awards have recognised world-wide talent since 1982, and this year will see some changes to categories that will address the growing spectrum of genres and platforms.
Categories to be introduced at the 2018 awards include Best Digital Documentary, Best Digital Special Event, Best Original Music and Miniseries.
In addition, numerous other categories have been expanded to include Best Extended News Coverage, Best Drama Feature, Best Music Feature, Best News Feature and Best Sports Feature.
“From podcasts to audio books and every length in-between, today’s radio audiences are thoroughly invested in listening,” said Rose Anderson, VP and executive director of New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards.
“Our new categories embrace that dynamic participation and emphasize the wide range of engaging topics storytellers everywhere are exploring.”
“When you talk about the media landscape, there is no doubt that Digital has been transformative in every way imaginable,” said Anderson.
“So, this year, we renamed the existing Online and Satellite groups to Digital and augmented that content area with Best Digital Documentary and Best Digital Special Event.
“Our Advisory Board has been a great help in making sure we continue to recognise innovation and excellence.”

Entries are open until March 16.
