Entries wanted for radio interview award

Entrants are being sought for the fourth annual Nick Clarke Award, which celebrates the best broadcast interview of the year.

Journalists and programme makers from across the BBC, commercial radio and independent production are eligible to enter – as are those from community, student and hospital radio stations.

Judges of the award are looking for interviews that left a strong impression on the audience, that provided a deeper understanding of their subject matter, or that were particularly memorable.

Previous winners include 5 Live’s Victoria Derbyshire and crime writer PD James who interviewed BBC Director General Mark Thompson while guest editor of the Today Programme.

Only one entry per programme and person is allowed, and the interview must have been conducted between 13 July 2010 and 31 July 2011. An audio recording of the interview needs to be submitted, exactly as broadcast, by 8 September.

The award is named after former Radio 4 World At One presenter Nick Clarke, who died from cancer in 2006.

The winner will be announced at this year’s Cheltenham Literature Festival on 10 October and will receive a dozen bottles of good claret – which we’re told Nick himself would have enjoyed.
