Give yourself every chance of reaching the shortlists for the 2018 Mixcloud Online Radio Awards with these trusty tips. And don’t forget: the deadline to submit nominations is Thursday 26th April. Good luck!
1. Ask your friends and fans to nominate you.
Did you know…not only can you nominate yourself, but you can also ask your friends and fans to nominate you for a Mixcloud Online Radio Award? The amount of nominations you receive will be taken into consideration when producing the shortlists, so we encourage you to reach out to friends and fans and ask them to nominate you!
2. Tell us exactly what makes you, your station or your show different.
You’ll be given 150 words to sell yourself so think carefully and choose these words wisely! Submissions that demonstrate originality, flair and an innovative approach to online radio awards will all have a strong chance of reaching the shortlists.
3. Pick a genre that you think most accurately describes your show.
Sure, this might sound obvious, but you’ll be surprised by how many submissions are entered into inappropriate genres. If you’re entering a show, take a minute to scan all the available genres and pick whichever one best describes your show. Then tell us why your show is among the best there is in this genre.
4. Submit an example show that will help you stand out from the crowd.
Your latest show might not be the finest example of your work. Look back over the past 12 months and consider what shows will help you stand out. From guest interviews to special themes, make sure you submit the example show you’re most proud of.
5. Don’t forget the deadline.
Add it to your calendar, write it down on a post-it note, tattoo it on your forearm…do whatever is necessary to make sure you don’t forget the deadline to submit your nominations, Thursday 26 April! And remember: every nomination counts, so encourage your friends and fans to nominate you up until the last minute.
