Fri, Jan 13 from 5:00pm to 5:00pm

The 2022 Awards of Excellence contest is open. The deadline for all entries is Friday, January 13th, 2023 with payments due the following Monday, January 16th, 2023. The 2022 Call for Entries is linked below, along with several additional helpful links. Categories remain the same, however there has been a slight modification to Rule #3 regarding voice-tracking. You can find the rules on the last page of the Call for Entries. Entry prices have been increased and are also on the last page of the Call for Entries and will be reflected on the entries as you submit through Entries Express. We strongly encourage you to login in early and make sure your account is setup properly. Submit one entry early, so you don’t run into problems near deadline.

A couple of tips…

  1. Don’t submit an entry until you’re absolutely sure the information and the audio/video is correct and complete. Entries cannot be deleted by users, once submitted! You will have to email the CBA office to have an entry deleted. This leads to confusion and errors. Please be certain before submitting.
  2. Please pay for all your completed entries, with a single payment, once you’ve finished entering. You can submit entries at your own pace and pay for them all when you’re done submitting. This helps us keep a cleaner track of your entries. We understand if you have to use different credit cards, but when possible avoid paying for each entry individually with the same card.

Click for the 2022 Call for Entries, don’t forget to review Credits vs Entrants and our Market Size Identifier and Key to make sure your entries are in the correct market size.

Once the contest closes, entries will be distributed to broadcast judging panels, nationwide. After the judging is completed, station managers will be notified, initially, of winning entries in first or second place. Entries Express entrants will also receive notifications in the weeks following the certification of winners.

Keep checking the CBA’s website and newsletter for updates.

Don’t forget to submit outstanding broadcasters for the Rex Howell Broadcaster of the Year and Harry W. Hoth Public Service Awards. These entries are free and simply require a nomination letter, outlining the nominees contributions to the Colorado broadcast industry. More details can be found in the Call for Entries.

We’re also excited to invite Colorado’s Future Broadcasters, students involved in high school or college radio and television, to enter our Future Broadcasters category, at no charge, again this year.

The CBA is here to help with questions as you begin the entry process.

Good Luck!
