Check the Preparation tab on how to submit your entry.
The Radio category includes any of the following media:
IMPORTANT: Please ensure that your entry description explains the context and how the material was viewed. If possible and where necessary, provide a walkthrough explaining all aspects of your entry, including the strategy, innovative ideas, target audience and provide any results you have.
Overview videos must be limited to 2 minutes. If it is felt necessary, the full-length work may accompany the 2-minute entry, check the “Preparation Guidelines” for more information.
Note: ALL non-English work must come with sub-titles & translations.
These instructions apply to all audio-based entries. PLEASE NOTE: NO OTHER FORMATS WILL BE ACCEPTED – IF YOUR FILES ARE NOT SENT IN THE CORRECT FORMAT YOUR ENTRY MAY BE REJECTED!
WE WILL NOT ACCEPT REPLACEMENT MATERIAL, so please make sure that the version you have uploaded or sent to us is the correct and final material.
TRANSLATION - NON-ENGLISH ENTRIES - All non-English radio entries must be submitted as a video file with English subtitles. Include any necessary explanation for the judging panel to understand the context of the translation. Please follow the TV, Film & Video preparation guidelines.
SINGLE ENTRIES - must be entered individually.
For example, three radio ads that are part of a campaign theme must be entered as individual entries, not all as one entry. If in the opinion of the jury, several pieces constitute a campaign, then these entries will be combined into one campaign award.
DO NOT PLACE YOUR NAME OR YOUR AGENCY BRANDING ON YOUR ENTRY
As all work is judged anonymously, you must ensure that no reference to your agency is included on the entry.
