Who can enter?
Entry to the awards is open to all full and temporary licensed community radio stations in the Republic of Ireland. Only stations can put forward entries for the awards.

The awards give your station an opportunity to showcase your achievements and to be acknowledged by the CRAOL network of Community Radio Stations.
