Presentation of Craol Achievement Awards 2012 26th May
Presentation of Craol Achievement Awards 2012 26th May

The Craol Achievement Awards 2012 will presented this year at the gala dinner of the 2012 Craol Féile in Athlone on the 26th May. The awards this years will be presented by the Chief Exectutive of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland Mr Michael O'Keeffe. 

The purpose of the 5th CRAOL Achievement Awards is to give community radio stations the opportunity to rise to the challenge of being the best community radio station you can be. The awards give stations an opportunity to showcase their achievements and to be acknowledged by the CRAOL network of Community Radio Stations.

Award Categories 2012

There are Six Categories in 2012, three repeating Core Categories, plus three Rotating Categories appearing for the first time. 

Core Award Categories for 2012

• Social Benefit
• Irish Language
• Commissioned Programming (Sound and Vision etc )

Rotating Award Categories for 2012

• News Bulletins
• Specialist Speech
• Volunteer team (non-programming)

Please see the Explanatory Notes for more details on the categories

Fully licenced Stations can enter a maximum of 3 Programmes (of which no more than 2 entries can be for Core Categories). Aspirant members can enter a maximum of one entry which can be for any Category

This is not a competition between community stations. Rather, stations should see this scheme as an opportunity to showcase a range of their programmes, to use the exercise to improve aspects of their operations and to challenge themselves to be the best community radio station they can be. This type of Award will enable your station to highlight such endorsements in grant applications, in local publicity etc. 

The application consisted of a short segment of each entered programme and a completed entry form addressing an agreed list of criteria for consideration. The topics which will assist the independent adjudication panel are the following;

  • Innovation (doing something that you had not attempted before.)
  • Team building (getting more than one person involved)
  • Community participation (were community group(s) involved)
  • Community awareness (growing awareness about the relevant topic within the community?)
  • Quality of content (demonstrating creativity and commitment to strong production/delivery values)
  • Volunteer Impact (indicating volunteer dedication, reliability, growth of competence and confidence, also, inspiration to others)

All entries will be considered as standalone efforts and, depending on the strength of their entry, be awarded one of a frame distinction award at the award ceremony, a merit certificate, or in some instances, returned to the station to be further developed and resubmitted. Awards will highlight your stations strengths.
