Community Radio Awards 2018- full winners list

Irish language station Raidió Fáilte from Belfast has been named Station of the Year at the 2018 Community Radio Awards.

More than 50 projects were recognised at the event, which was hosted by last year’s Female and Male gold recipients Louise Croombs and Mark Blackman.

It was attended by over 200 volunteers from the sector who gathered in Sheffield on Saturday night.

Martin Steers, awards chair, told RadioToday: “This independent event continues to grow from year to year, and it’s amazing to build momentum and celebrate the fantastic work that this sector produces in its communities on a daily basis.

“A big thank you to all those who entered, to the 50 judges, to our venue Sheffield Hallam Students Union, and to all our sponsors”.

We’d love to see even more stations entering the awards next year.”
