The 2015 awards are now open and include some sparkly new categories including:
- Best audiobook / readings producer
- Best Nations and Regions producer
- The Presenter Hero Award for exceptional on-air talent, who in the eyes of their producers has gone over-and-above the call of duty on a regular basis.
New talent joining the industry, will also be celebrated with the Grassroots Production Award, which will go to an “individual, production company, radio station or community based organisation that has shown extraordinary achievement in identifying, nurturing or mentoring new and diverse talent to the radio and audio industry”.
There are also categories for podcasts and multiplatform content creators.
If you’d like to enter now’s the time to start getting your entry together. The closing date is noon on 25th September.
