The Hospital Broadcasting Association is now welcoming entries for the annual Hospital Radio Awards.
The awards are open to any HBA member station, divided into different categories, each one recognising a specific area of excellence. Some are awarded to individuals, others to stations.
Most of the categories recognise Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners; however, some prizes are awarded to only one individual with no runner-up places.
The closing date for entries is midnight on 15th November 2015 and the awards will be presented in Watford during March next year.
The award categories for 2016 are:
- Station of the Year
- Male Presenter of the Year
- Female Presenter of the Year
- Special Event
- Best Speech Package
- Best Newcomer
- Best Specialist Music Programme
- Station Promotion
- The John Whitney Award
- Best Programme with Multiple Presenters
- Fundraiser of the Year
Last year Radio Tyneside took home three Gold awards whilst Hospital Radio Plymouth were awarded two, including Station of the Year. More details here.
