2018 CBU Caribbean Media Awards Open for Entries

Dec 20, 2018 | News Releases



The Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) Caribbean Media Awards are open for entries.  Entries can be submitted to admin@caribroadcastunion.org up to midnight (Eastern Caribbean time) on April 5, 2019.

The Union is broadening the appeal of its annual Awards competition by opening up additional categories to print and digital entries, along with the traditional radio and television material.  

This enhancement is in line with the expansion of the CBU’s membership categories to include print and digital media as full members. 

The CBU is also highlighting that a number of categories are open to non-members, including advertising agencies, once the material is published by CBU members, during the eligibility period; entries must have been broadcast or published between January 1 and December 31, 2018.

The upcoming renewal will include special theme categories supported by partners such as UNICEF, UNESCO, Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) and Island Media, sponsors of the Golden Conch Shell Award.

And to give entrants greater insight into the competition, the CBU will host live webinars to give submitting organisation tips on what makes for a winning entry in the relevant theme category. 

The first series of webinars will be hosted by CVC focussing on the category – Coverage of HIV-AIDS. 

Interested members are invited to contact the Secretariat at info@caribroadcastunion.org to arrange for a personalized video-conference for the individual member organization.

The updated rules and entry forms can be downloaded from the CBU website at www.caribroadcastunion.org.
