British Public Radio Awards: The Finalists

Entries for the inaugural British Public Radio Awards closed at the end of July 2013, with over 100 entries being submitted to organisers.

Tim Nice, boss at British Public Radio said: “We’ve been absolutely bowled over by the standard of the submissions, reaffirming our belief that there is a huge amount of creative talent out there.”
