The Linda Gage Memorial Award - 2002

For the sixth year, entries were invited for short features which demonstrate entrant’s production skills,  The award is open to all those on recognised radio or media training courses.  The judges are looking for an innovative piece of radio (a short feature up to 4 minutes in duration) that demonstrates production and presentation skills and which makes full creative use of the medium of sound. The judges assessed entries on the technical quality, editorial content and overall production.

This year’s prize included a portable mini disc recorder, a place at the Radio Festival and a year's subscription to The RADIO Magazine.

The winning entry was submitted by Richard Russell, a student from Farnborough College of Technology in Hampshire.

The award attracted a record number of entries from radio students from all parts of the United Kingdom. In making the award to Richard Russell, the judges commented that his entry "Remembering War" demonstrated an imaginative use of audio that would find an audience.
