Nominations out for the VOX Awards 2015

The finalists for the 2015 VOX Awards have been announced with the winners set to be revealed at the VOX Conference on the 16 May.

The VOX Awards recognises the talents of those who produce radio commercials on the UK’s network of independent radio stations, in-store retail messages and commercials and on UK telephone systems, and is sponsored by Voiceovers Ltd.

Entries were open to commercial producers, production companies and voiceover artists themselves and have now been shortlisted to eighteen finalists. They are battling it out in a total of six categories – which includes the coveted titles of ‘Best Female’ and ‘Best Male’ voiceovers for 2015.

Generally around 8,000 votes are received during the voting period, and can be done online at this website.
