RAIN: Radio And Internet Newsletter, the leading trade publication for the Internet radio industry, today announced the creation of the “RAIN Internet Radio Awards” to recognize the achievement of the industry’s most ambitious and innovative services.
Broadcasters and webcasters in the Internet radio industry can enter their services for awards in three categories:
- Best Overall Online Radio Service
- Best Streaming Broadcast Station
- Best Overall Digital Strategy
“For over ten years, the Internet radio space has been evolving and maturing, and we want to begin to recognize those stations and services whose work has driven that innovation,” said RAIN Publisher Kurt Hanson. “An invited panel of Internet radio’s movers and shakers will review the entries and select winners for this year’s round of awards.”
I’m proud to be working with Kurt, Paul and RAIN on the creation of these annual awards for Internet radio. I think it’s time to begin recognizing excellence in our industry as inspiration to streaming radio services everywhere.
Streaming services and stations can enter the competition by visiting the RAIN Internet Radio Awards webpage and clicking on the category they wish to enter. A fee of $19 per entry is required, and services/stations can enter as many categories as they are eligible for.
Awards will be announced during RAIN Summit East in Washington DC in September (details coming soon on that..)
