About the Liberty Radio Awards

The Liberty Radio Awards aims to present a credible, well-judged transparent programme that promotes and recognises excellence in radio, with the objective of ensuring that radio remains one of South Africa’s foremost media choices. It’s about rewarding those individuals and organisations who combine talent, hard work and skill to ensure that their listeners are compelled. It’s about securing the future of the radio industry by rewarding excellence and motivating the constant and consistent raising of standards.

Over 91% of South Africans interact with radio on a weekly basis – more than any other media category.

The Liberty Radio Awards seeks to motivate radio people and organisations to constantly raise the bar in terms of their performance; with a firm focus on keeping their listener engaged and happy. This secures the station’s future with the advantage of knowing that they are amongst the best of the best in an increasingly competitive landscape.
We’re proud to recognise and honour South Africa’s outstanding radio talent, from in-front-of-the mic presenters to behind-the-scenes producers. In doing so, we hope to inspire people wishing to enter this dynamic industry. Winning a Liberty Radio Award needs to be seen as a key achievement, something to be added to the individual’s or the station’s résumé.

About the Judges

With most of the adjudicators emanating from the radio industry, organizers have ensured that categories and tasks are allocated in such a manner as to ensure that no conflicts-of-interest arise (for example, no judge with a vested interest in a commercial station will be allowed to judge commercial station entries, and the same refers to PBS, Community and Campus). In addition, no single adjudicator has the ability to influence the results. Each adjudicator enters their scores online and has no view of the score that any other adjudicator is allocating.

Judges for the Liberty Radio Awards are selected on the basis of their relevant experience and expertise.
