RAIN 7/26: Call For Entries for the RAIN Internet Radio Awards

Posted on: 07/26/2010

ENTER YOUR WEBSITE OR RADIO SERVICE TODAY

Today we’re issuing a formal call for entries for the first-ever RAIN Internet Radio Awards. Help us recognize the achievements of Internet radio’s most ambitious and innovative services by entering your online radio service here.

Both broadcasters and webcasters are encouraged to apply — in fact, there’s a specific award category devoted to terrestrial broadcasters who are streaming online.

Judges will select winners in three award categories:

“Best Overall Online Radio Service” celebrates the online-only or streaming broadcast station with the best overall online listener experience. That includes programming, technology, popularity of the service, attractiveness of the site and/or player and many other factors.

“Best Streaming Broadcast Station” recognizes the broadcast station that has executed the best streaming strategy.

Finally, “Best Overall Digital Strategy,” spotlights the broadcast station, broadcast group, or online-only webcaster that has implemented the finest overall digital strategy — including not just (or necessarily) streaming, but a service’s website design, mobile efforts, downloads, videos, podcasts, and other features.

You can find out more about each category here.

Entries will be accepted here. There is a nominal $19 fee per entry.

The awards will be presented on September 28 during RAIN Summit East in Washington D.C., at the RAB/NAB Radio Show. Find out more about RAIN Summit East — and register to attend — here.

The RAIN Internet Radio Awards are sponsored by Triton Media, AccuRadio and Audio4Cast. (Note that AccuRadio and its related brands will not be eligible to compete.)
