RadioBiz, South Africa reports that MTN Radio Awards entries have closed, and it is now up to the Adjudication Panel to review and score the submissions. The 2013 edition of the awards has seen a significant increase in the number of entries submitted for the various categories. “With the growth in interest in the MTN Radio Awards, we have substantially overshot our objective of attracting 1 000 entries,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the MTN Radio Awards. “However more important than the number of entries is the fact that there was a 33% increase in the number of stations that submitted entries, taking the number of stations eligible for an award up to 68,” adds Rothschild.
Submissions will now be sent to the adjudicators to review them over the next four weeks. The panel includes a broad cross section of people with substantial radio experience, and a passion for- and innate knowledge of- radio. “In response to our call for recommendations for adjudicators, we received a substantial amount of input from within the industry and even members of the public. I believe we have a well-balanced panel, and I am keenly looking forward to see results of their deliberations over the coming weeks,” says Rothschild.
