Across a wide variety of specialisms and topics, a shortlisting in the awards is recognition of a commitment to community, craft and causes.

More than 460 entries from 90 licenced stations have been whittled down to five per category.

Awards chair Martin Steers said: “This year has been a challenge for the sector, with studio lockdowns, loss of income and cancelled events. However, community radio stations have responded by stepping up engagement with their local communities, with more programming and innovative presenters across the country broadcasting from home.

“We are excited to announce that this year’s awards have more entries than ever before. The quality of the entries continues to grow, and the judges are always blown away by the output, engagement, entertainment, and social gain that the sector produces.

“It is clear to see from this, that passionate presenters, volunteers, and staff are really there for their audiences. These local radio stations are truly at the heart of their communities.”

The awards ceremony is taking place virtually this year, on December 12th, 7pm.
