The Linda Gage Memorial Award - 2003

For the seventh year, entries were invited for short features which demonstrate entrant’s production skills,  The competition was open to all those on recognised radio or media training courses.  The judges looked for an innovative piece of radio (a short feature up to 4 minutes in duration) that demonstrated production and presentation skills and which made full creative use of the medium of sound. The judges assessed entries on the technical quality, editorial content and overall production.  This year saw entries from students studying at a wide range of colleges around the country.

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 Fiona Harris, a student from Goldsmiths College in London.

In making the award to Fiona Harris, the judges commented that her entry "Story" was an attention-grabbing surreal and unique creation that successfully pushed the boundaries of creative production. Click here for the judges comments in full.

The award was presented to Fiona at the Radio Festival in Birmingham on the 7th July.

We are grateful to Independent Radio News, Broadcast Training Ltd, The Radio Magazine and the Radio Academy for supporting this year's prizes.
