New York (December 8, 2005)–Submissions are now being accepted for the 2nd Annual Olives Awards, advertising’s premiere competition honoring the very best writing in radio advertising. Sponsored by Sound Lounge Radio, the competition is open to adverting industry professionals nationwide.
Participants may submit their “most hilarious, touching, delightful or brilliant unproduced radio scripts.” Winners, to be announced in May, will receive cash prizes up to $3000 and, better yet, have their scripts professionally produced by Sound Lounge Radio.
Submissions, made through the Olives website, must be received by February 10, 2006. Judging will be performed by a blue ribbon panel whose members include top creatives from some of the largest and most respected advertising agencies in the country.
“The first Olives were a tremendous success and confirmed our belief in the breadth of talent involved in writing radio advertising,” said Sound Lounge Radio executive producer Gregg Singer. “Gauging by the interest we have already received in this year’s competition, we expect a significant increase in participation and even better work.”
The Olives is a competition for new and unproduced radio scripts. Entrants can be for any product and in any genre. Scripts can be written for The Olives or work written for clients that, for whatever reason, hasn’t been produced. Complete details are available at The Olives website, www.theolivesawards.com.
The first Olives Awards competition, completed this past June, drew hundreds of submissions from across the country. Finalists included creatives from Arnold Worldwide, Lowe Worldwide and Publicis.
