The Impact award recognizes an audio story that has made a significant impact on an individual or community, broadly defined. We are looking for work in the audio field that has directly resulted in a change to a place, community, law, or culture; this can be an investigative report that influenced public debate, a radio story that changed the course of an individual’s life, or a piece of audio that affected the awareness or understanding of a community in a new way. To this end, we require each entry to this category be accompanied by a supporting statement outlining the precise details of the impact, and how it was measured. This award is judged by both the craft of the audio entry, and the strength of the written argument of its impact.

There is one award in this category.

The 2022 Call for Entries will open in Fall 2022.
