The programmes from which your entries are extracted must have been broadcast within the validity period: 1st June 2017 to 31st May 2018.
Each mp3 file should contain a minimum of 6 unedited extracts taken from a number of programmes and not exceed 30 minutes duration. The designated date entry is required to be in chronological order but the year- long entry is not required to be in chronological order.
The extracts must be separated with a 2 seconds dead air, so that Judges will understand where each extract ends and the next one begins. You will be asked to complete the running order of extracts on the entry form.
No other editing is permitted and all other programme material should be included in full. For example you are NOT permitted to take the first three minutes of an interview, fade down and then include a further piece from that same interview. You may either include one excerpt from the interview or the entire interview, should it fall within the time allowed for that entry. Please go to the rules and read carefully all the rules relating to the Submission of Broadcast Material .
Additional post-production audio material such as voice links, introductions or sign-offs are not permitted i.e. do not use voice links, stings, music beds or other post-produced elements. Judges are specifically instructed to disqualify should this occur.
The entry must be supported by a 500 word paragraph. The online entry form is designed to only permit a maximum of 500 words.
