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

Entries are only open to an Ofcom licensed and broadcasting radio station, operated by a not-for-profit or charitable entity with a remit to serve a community of location or a locally based community of interest. - Any questions about eligibility please email.

Material for entries must be original and have been 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, recognise 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.

Data submitted on this awards platform is held securely by Submittable. Email addresses and names will also be uploaded to Mailchimp so we can contact submitters about the progress of the awards.

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 please contact us.
