How Do I Enter?
Entries to the 2013 Sony Radio Academy Awards have now CLOSED.
The NOMINATIONS will be announced on Wednesday 10th April 2013 via a live webcast from this site.
The WINNERS will be revealed on the evening of Monday, 13th May at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane.
1. Read through the Categories
If you're thinking about submitting an entry, the best place to start is with the 2013 Award Categories. Make sure you read through the rubrics carefully and check your eligibility.
2. Check the Conditions of Entry
You should also familiarise yourself with the Conditions of Entry.
3. Register/Log In via 'Make an Entry'
When you’ve decided on the category or categories, the first thing you need to do is to register. Once you've done that, you can log on and create, edit and update your entry/ies, right up until the closing date. If you entered last year, you'll be able to use last year's registration details and password and won't need to register this year. If you've forgotten your password, please email us at and we'll send you a reminder.
4. Make your Entry
For each entry you make, you will need to complete an entry form and upload your audio. Make sure you refer back to the rubrics for each category you are entering as requirements do vary from category to category.
Each entry you create will be saved in Pending Entries. While an entry is pending, you will be able to edit and save for later, print draft copies, clone or delete as you wish.
You have until 5.00pm on Wednesday 6th February 2013 to finalise your entries. You will not be able to submit any additional entries or make any changes to existing entries after this date.
5. Hard Copies and Entry Authorisation
You do NOT need to post hard copies of your entry paperwork, CDs of your audio or signed authorisations - the entire entry process can be completed online. For some categories, entrants are permitted to send in additional supporting information over and above the online audio and entry form submission but please refer to the individual category rubrics for further details.
ALL entries must be authorised by the entrant’s Company Director/Station Manager, or person of similar seniority. You will supply us with the name and email address of the person to contact and we'll do the rest.
IF you are an independent production company or producer submitting an entry, confirmation that the broadcasting station/company is aware and supportive of your entry is also required. As above, you supply us with the name and email address of the person to contact.
IF you are an advertising agency, you will need to supply your JET reference number (or a media planner schedule) as proof of transmission. There's a field on the entry for this information.
IF you are an internet broadcaster you will be asked to confirm that all necessary third party rights and performance and/or music clearances have been attained.
6. Paying for your entry
Once you've completed the entry form and uploaded your audio, payment can be made online via Paypal. You do not need to have a Paypal account as you can also use any credit or debit card.
If you are submitting 3 or more entries at the same time, you will also have the option of paying via invoice. You will need to supply us with a PO number and your invoice will be automatically generated when you finalise your entry and forwarded to you in an email. Please be sure to pass the invoice on to the relevant department for payment as soon as possible.
The closing date for entries is Wednesday 6th February 2013 at 5.00pm.
