Entries achieving Finalist status move on to an additional round of judging to determine trophy-winners.
“Once again, the NYF Grand Jury selected Finalists whose work embodies the full spectrum of radio content today,” said Rose Anderson, VP/Executive Director of New York Festivals Radio Awards, “and as audiences’ appetites for radio and audio continue to fuel robust industry growth, the level of creativity continues to rise as well.”
