T&C of Submission - by submitting an entry you are agreeing to the below:


Entries are only open to Ofcom-licensed and broadcasting community radio stations. Except Podcast and RSL & Digital Station of the Year


Material for entries must have been original and broadcast on the station for which the entry has been submitted.

You give the Community Radio Awards permission to share and use all material submitted as part of the awards entry process to promote the awards and entries and showcase the work of community radio. Entries submitted to the awards will be used to celebrate, recongise and promote community radio, and may be shared with partners, funders, sponsors and externally for those purposes.


As community media organisations are businesses, and submissions are made by agents on their organisations behalf we consider this a business to business relationship.

By submitting an entry we consider the data submitted as part of a contractual arrangement, as such we will use names and email addresses to contact those who have entered to let them know about the progress of the awards, and the awards ceremony. If you wish your details and entry to be removed from the awards do not hestitate to contact us.
