This yearâ€™s judging panel an international Whoâ€™s Who of radio creative.
Online PR News – 28-October-2016 – New York City, New York – Oink Ink Radio, a boutique advertising agency specializing in the creation and production of award winning radio commercials, announced today itâ€™s call for entries to its annual Dead Radio Contest. rnrnThe competition solicits advertising writers to submit their best â€śdeadâ€ť scripts for consideration (scripts that clients previously deemed not worthy of production). A panel of judges comprised of industry leaders from both the U.S. and abroad then selects the grand prize-winner who is treated to an expense-paid trip to Oinkâ€™s New York City studios, where they enjoy a 2-night hotel stay and experience the full production of their winning script. rnrnThis yearâ€™s contest features a highly decorated panel of judges. Theyâ€™re from the U.S., Europe, Australia and Asia. Theyâ€™ve chaired radio awards at Cannes, One Show, Clios and LIAA. Three have won Mercury Grand Prizes, one was twice awarded Best of Show at The London International Awards, and there will even be a two-time Dead Radio winner present. rnrnThis yearâ€™s Dead Radio Contest takes on a unique theme with a CPR vibe that boasts, â€śIt only takes a few minutes to save a scriptâ€™s life.â€ť The website invites participants to â€śdig out and dust off your best radio scripts for possible resuscitation by the life savers at Oink Ink.â€ťrnLast yearâ€™s Dead Radio winner was Joe Oâ€™Neill, a Senior Copywriter with Manifest Communications in Toronto, Canada and the competitionâ€™s first ever two-time winner. His spot entitled â€śThe First Timeâ€ť was written for Covenant House and was selected from hundreds of entries from copywriters from across the U.S. and beyond. rnrnâ€śWeâ€™re beyond excited for this yearâ€™s contest,â€ť says Oinkâ€™s President, Dan Price. â€śWhile we always have great judges participate, this year weâ€™re thrilled to have the worldâ€™s biggest radio advertising icons on board. People like Tony Hertz (author of â€śThe 7 Secrets of Creative Radio Advertisingâ€ť) and Ralph van Dijk (Eardrum/Australia) make the most formidable radio panel ever assembled.â€ť rnrnThis year's submission deadline is December 4th.
