New York Festivals 2016 open for entries

The 2016 New York Festivals International Radio Programme Awards is now open for entries, with new categories for this year.

The new Categories are Biography/Profiles, Climate Change & Sustainability, and Music, in addition to the numerous categories already available for radio stations, networks, and independent producers from 32 countries around the globe.

In 2015, NYF honoured three outstanding programmes with Grand Trophies including “D-Day: 70 Years On” by TBI Media with Snappin’ Turtle Productions which received the Grand Award in the Best Special Event category for their programme honouring the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

“New York Festivals recognises the ever-evolving nature of the radio industry”, said Rose Anderson, Executive Director of New York Festivals International Radio Programme Awards. “Time does not stand still in the radio industry – new ways of reaching listeners and new ways of telling the important stories of our day drive change. So, every year, we work with our advisory board and we update some categories as well as create new ones. It is an organic ecosystem. We embrace the new while keeping the best practices of what has come before.”

“In our ever-changing world, radio is the original social media,” said Ms. Anderson. “There is a universal language of radio which connects us all – giving us the ability to meet directly in each other’s imagination and guided by the textures of sound to understand each other.”

The deadline for entering the competition is March 18, 2016 and the awards ceremony takes place in New York on June 20th.
