Rose Anderson, SVP & Executive Director, New York Festivals Radio Awards says: “Our categories for investigative journalism and nonfiction series documentaries and social justice across all genres recognised how individual actions can change the world and the ability of the human spirit to triumph over adversity.
“Today’s storytellers are finding innovative ways to keep listeners informed, entertained, and engaged in our ever-changing and interconnected world so the New York Festivals Radio Awards has introduced eight new categories that encompass that robust creative spirit.”

Entries are judged on production values, creativity, content presentation, direction, writing, achievement of purpose, and audience suitability.
