The Radio Academy and Radio Independents Group have announced details of this year’s Radio Production Awards, with entries now being accepted.
The awards – now in their third year – recognise the work of UK-based radio and audio producers, and are open to independents, freelancers and programme-makers working across BBC, commercial, community, student and hospital radio as well as those in digital companies making online radio and podcasts.
There are 12 categories in all, with entries open until 24th April. Nominations will be announced on 12th June and the prizes handed out on 12th July.
John Myers, Chief Executive of The Radio Academy, said: “It’s fantastic for The Radio Academy to be working with RIG again to recognise and celebrate the individual producers and production companies whose skill, creativity and innovation has produced exceptional radio and audio in the last year. The RPAs are special because they reward the radiomakers themselves, people whose names may not be familiar but whose work is essential. We’re looking forward to a wonderful night with some very talented people – see you there!”
Mike Hally, Chair of the Radio Independents Group (RIG), said: “It’s great to see these important awards, which are unique in focussing on the highest audio and radio-making skills of individuals across the UK, going into their third year. It’s also satisfying to see the Radio Academy and RIG working together to make them happen. I urge as many people as possible to enter their best work and I’m really looking forward to hearing the winners in July.”
