New Rising Star category for IRN Awards

The 2013 IRN Awards are now open for entries, and will feature a new Rising Star award for students of broadcast journalism.

Organisers tell us the Rising Star is designed to build on links between IRN, the commercial radio newsrooms and the colleges, many of whom already subscribe to the IRN feeds.

And this year, the individual awards are open for up to three entries per station, including Reporter of the Year, Newsreader of the Year and Best News Special.

Categories for 2013 are:

News Team of the Year > 750,000 TSA
News Team of the Year < 750,000 TSA
Best Sports Story
Reporter of the Year
Newsreader of the Year
Best News Special or Feature of the Year (replacing Original Story)
And Finally
Rising Star of the Year

In addition, the judges will present an IRN Gold Award to an individual, news team, station or group judged to be worthy of recognition for an outstanding contribution to news and/or sport in UK commercial radio.

Enrties opened on November 5th, with a closing date of December 7th. The event itself takes place on Wednesday 27th March 2013.
