In addition, The Kevin Greening Creativity Award recognises outstanding creativity in student radio. It is given in the memory of Kevin Greening and can go to a person, a show team, a marketing campaign, a jingle, a link – anything that stands out to the judges as different and creative.

The SRA explains: “This award can be given to any entry to the Student Radio Awards – whether you’ve been nominated or not – but you’ll have to be at the ceremony at the indigO2 on Thursday, November the 9th to find out.

“To buy your tickets for the ceremony, head to sratickets.co.uk – there are dining and non-dining options, and it will definitely be a night to remember!”
