The ARIAS 2024 entry nominations have now opened

Entry nominations for The ARIAS 2024 are now open until Wednesday 7th February.

The annual event from The Radio Academy will take place this year on Tuesday 7th May at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in the West End.

This will be the first ARIAS launched by the new Managing Director of The Radio Academy, Aradhna Tayal Leach, who says: “I feel honoured to be launching The ARIAS 2024, the first awards of my tenure as Managing Director.

“We look forward to having all of our audio and radio peers from across our broad and growing community, come together for a night of celebration.

“We’re proud to be global leaders in audio talent and storytelling and can’t wait to showcase those stories that really shine, not only nationally but deep into our own local communities too.”

Once again, there are 27 Categories, including Best New Presenter, Best Music Breakfast Show and Best New Podcast.

There will also be one change to a category; Best Sports Coverage which was previously named Best Sports Show. This change is set to reward the live nature of sports coverage within radio broadcasting. Sports documentaries should now be entered in either of the two Best Factual Programmes.
