ARIAS AWARDS




THE ARIAS ARE MOVING TO LONDON

We are delighted to announce that the next Audio and Radio Industry Awards will take place in London.

The 36th annual celebration of UK radio and audio will take place in London’s West End in early 2020.

The ceremony will see 23 awards handed out, with recognition for presenters, production teams, podcasts and radio stations.

These will include the inaugural John Myers Award for Local Radio Station of the Year, named after the visionary pioneer of local radio, who died suddenly earlier this year.

For the first time, the ARIAS will also include a public vote category for Moment Of The Year. Radio Academy members will be invited to nominate their favourite pieces of audio, and a shortlist of ten will be put to the general public ahead of the ceremony.

Entries for the ARIAS will be open from 1st October to 5 November and entrants in the first week will benefit from a special reduced early bird entry fee. Tickets for the awards will go on sale shortly afterwards.
