This year’s Radio Production Awards are open to submit entries, with a closing date of September 17th.
The awards, now in their fifth year, are organised by the Radio Academy and the Radio Independents Group and culminate in an awards evening at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square on Tuesday 25th November.
Winners are production individuals, not programmes, radio stations, presenters or production companies.
Gloria Abramoff, interim CEO of The Radio Academy said: “How fab that The Radio Academy and RIG will be working together on the fifth annual Radio Production Awards; it’s a great partnership. It’s important that the people who are responsible for making the amazing audio and radio programmes we hear every day have their moment in the spotlight and are recognised for their skills.”
Will Jackson, Managing Director of the Radio Independents Group, said: “At this exciting time for the radio industry, the Radio Independents Group is delighted to be celebrating the incredible work of the UK’s audio producers. The RPAs enable us to ensure the talented people supporting the creative economy, by making great content every day, get the recognition they fully deserve.”
