Entry Fee Details


Required Material

Entry may be for a single broadcast or a series. Work must have originally been distributed in
2013 and must be entered as presented (with exception of advertisements). Supplemental
material is welcome but must be clearly marked.

The nominating or cover letter must include a description of the entry, objective, how the
objective was met and the results, if any. Be sure to include the name of the person who should be notified if the entry is declared a winner or finalist along with their contact information: phone number, e-mail address and mailing address (not a post office box number). This may be
someone in addition to the entrant.

Entry Format

Entrant should upload the work to our online entry site. You will be asked for the days the work aired. You do not need to list each date; simply enter the first and last dates of the distribution.

All audio files must be mp3. Online material must be available on a live URL that functions on a standard web browser. Include script(s). Supplemental material may be included but must be clearly marked. Remember that judges see the titles of the digital files. Do not name your files “SHA entry” or similar variations. Use your media outlet’s name in the file name to distinguish your entry and make it easy for the judges to find and remember.

NOTE: Our competition offers one entry site with fields that ask for information that may not
apply to your entry. When you encounter this fill the field with "does not apply" so that the
system will permit you to move to the next step.
