RADIO COMMUNICATION

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 Film 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.
