The Radio-Mercury Awards has introduced an annual $2500 College Award that will expand awareness about Radio creative to the college community and encourage the effective use of Radio creative to reach and motivate consumers. The Radio-Mercury College Award will make its debut as part of the upcoming 2003 competition.
Each year, the Radio-Mercury Awards rewards excellence in Radio commercials, giving more than $150,000 in prize monies, including the coveted $100,000 Grand Prize, to the creators of America's best Radio advertising.
The new Radio-Mercury College Award will be open to colleges and universities with no limit on the number of entries that can be submitted. Individual students are not eligible. The $2500 cash award and Trophy will also be presented to the winning school. English and Spanish-Lanquage entries may be submitted. The College Award entry fee will be $30 per commercial entry.
"We want to recognize and reward the best college-produced Radio commercials with a $2500 donation to the winning school," said Gary Fries, Co-Chairman of the Radio Creative Fund and President and Chief Executive Officer of the Radio Advertising Bureau. "It is imperative to our industry that graduating creative students enter the work force with knowledge on how to develop commercials that maximize Radio's ability to deliver results for clients."
