2017 Judging

  • Judging panels are comprised of qualified individuals from the agency, production, and radio communities. Our judging criteria ensure that each entry is evaluated on its own individual merits. Judges will not evaluate any entry in which they or their company were involved.
  • Entries that survive the first round of judging are evaluated in a second round, which determines the finalists, as well as the winners, in each category.
  • The decisions of judges during the judging process, and thereafter, the decisions of The Radio Mercury Awards, shall be final.
  • The Radio Mercury Awards reserves the right, if necessary, to interpret judging scores and weigh factors relevant to the competition’s purpose of rewarding creative excellence, to ensure that a winner is selected in every award category. The decisions of judges during the judging process, and thereafter, the decisions of The Radio Mercury Awards, shall be final.
