Jury Comments:

Speaking on the Awards, jury member Agnello Dias said, “There are only special print and TV awards. There is lack of encouragement for the radio fraternity. I am happy that exchange4media took this initiative to have the first of its kind Awards for the radio industry. I feel these kind of awards will encourage the radio industry.”

According to Sandip Tarkas, another jury member, “Radio is one of the fastest mediums, and these Awards will give an idea of what will work on radio and what will not. It is a great initiative taken by the exchange4media Group.”

All radio stations rush in your entries for the exchange4media Radio Advertising awards.
