About the SA Radio Awards
The SA Radio Awards aims to present a credible, well-judged transparent programme that
promotes and recognises excellence in radio, with the objective of ensuring that radio remains one
of South Africa’s foremost media choices. It’s about rewarding those individuals and organisations
who combine talent, hard work and skill to ensure that their listeners are compelled.
With radio still at the forefront of media utilised by South Africans to interact with their world, the SA
Radio Awards seeks to motivate radio people and organisations to constantly raise the bar in terms
of their performance; with a firm focus on keeping their listener engaged and happy.
We’re proud to recognise and honour South Africa’s outstanding radio talent, from in-front-of-themic
presenters to behind-the-scenes producers. In doing so, we hope to inspire people wishing to
enter this dynamic industry. Winning an SA Radio Award needs to be seen as a key achievement,
something to be added to the individual’s or the station’s résumé.
About the Judges
Judges for the SA Radio Awards are selected on the basis of their relevant experience and expertise.
With many of the adjudicators emanating from the radio industry, organizers have ensured that
categories and tasks are allocated in such a manner as to ensure that no conflicts-of-interest arise
(for example, no judge with a vested interest in a commercial station will be allowed to judge
commercial station entries, and the same refers to PBS, Community and Campus). In addition, no
single adjudicator has the ability to influence the results. Each adjudicator enters their scores
online and has no view of the score that any other adjudicator is allocating.
