Since 2010, New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards has expanded their categories annually to provide a platform for those with a distinctive voice and point of view regarding issues and topics of interest. This year, NYF expanded their dynamic category roster by adding three additional documentary categories: Biography/Profiles, Climate Change & Sustainability, and Music. The newly launched categories will provide a platform for those with a distinctive voice and point of view regarding issues and topics of interest.
News headlines around the world feature reports about global climate changes and efforts to balance the effects. The recently unveiled Climate Change and Sustainability category will recognize programs that address the critical issues of climate change on our planet and in-depth perspectives on sustainability awareness.
“In our ever-changing world, radio is the original social media,” said Ms. Anderson. “There is a universal language of radio which connects us all – giving us the ability to meet directly in each others imagination and guided by the textures of sound to understand each other.”
