It's back. The original Dead Radio contest. Last year's made for some pretty epic dead radio spots. We're looking forward to hearing the winning losers from this year's contest. Check out the details below, and get to dustin' off your rejected scripts.
Oink Ink Radio has announced the Call for Entries to its 16th Annual Dead Radio Contest.
Dead Radio is a competition for advertising copywriters who have written radio scripts that for whatever reason (too provocative, too silly, too expensive or simply overlooked) were never selected for air by the client.
A panel of industry creatives will judge the entries and choose the best “dead” spot, along with 2 runners-up. The Grand Prize Winner receives a deluxe trip to Oink’s studios in New York City, where the once-shelved spot is brought back to life and given the benefit of a fully cast, directed and mixed production. Judging by the success of prior years, Oink Ink expects 2013’s pool of submissions to be extremely competitive.
This year's submission deadline is December 16th. Contest details and submission forms can be found on the Dead Radio Contest Website, or by contacting Jessica Rondash [email@example.com / 212-334-5800].
