Prod Awards – deadline nears
The first ever Radio Academy and Radio Independents Group Radio Production Awards, is just one week away from its closing date for entries.
The awards aim to recognise and celebrate the work of UK-based radio and audio producers.
Organisers say the RPA's will honour the achievement of individual producers and production companies demonstrated by a body of work created and delivered during the previous year, and are open to independents, freelancers and programme-makers working in BBC, commercial, community, student and hospital radio.
Daily Telegraph radio critic Gillian Reynolds, who was the very first Fellow of the Radio Academy, has kindly agreed to take on the role of Chair of Judges.
Trevor Dann, Chief Executive of the Radio Academy, said: "The RPAs will celebrate the work of some of the unsung heroes of British radio. The judges will be looking for flair, innovation and creativity."
Mike Hally, Chair of the Radio Independents Group, said: "Recognising the creative genius of the best radio production people has been an ambition of RIG for years and to see it come to fruition in collaboration with the Radio Academy is really exciting. We look forward to these awards becoming a major event in the radio calendar."
