13th Annual Radio Awards: Open for entries


The prestigious Radio Awards – now in its 13th year – continues to honour and recognise exceptional and innovative excellence in the South African radio industry, setting a benchmark for all radio stations and professionals to strive towards.  Entries have officially opened and stations are invited to make their submissions.

The complete list of entry-categories for 2023 can be viewed on The Radio Awards website, where stations are advised to ensure their entry fits the required criteria.   There is no entry fee, and stations may edit their entries right up until the 9 July 2023 entry deadline.

This year is the first time that the Station Manager’s Choice category is included in the main entry system. Station managers can now submit their nominations for this category as they have done in previous years for the Hall of Fame and Bright Star categories.
