Advice from the Judges

  • Content and presentation are being judged. Make sure to take the time to properly edit your entries.
  • Showing what you do for your communities is key to a winning entry.
  • Let the judges see what your station has accomplished by including images, video, and audio whenever possible.
  • Our judging team is from outside Indiana. Don’t assume they understand the context for your entry. If your entry needs explanation, make sure you have a voice-over introduction or written introduction.
  • “Station of the Year” is judged last, and all entries judged prior to this category give the judges a sense of your station’s programming, skills, and talent. Insure variety in your entries.
