The Gold Medal Awards

The Gold Medal Awards are presented to WAB member stations for outstanding contribution to Canadian broadcasting industry in the area of community service.

Please note there are Gold Medal Awards for community service in Radio & Digital and Television & Digital.

Please note, your submitted entries under Radio and Television can have a cross-over digital component. We encourage you to explain in your nomination package

Under Radio & Digital, your station is able to apply under one of the 2 categories:

– Market size under 150,000
– Market size 150,000 & up

Under Television & Digital, nominations will not be judged separately by market size.

Examples of media releases pertaining to that initiative or program along with samples of media coverage may also be submitted in support of your entry.

What new and innovative initiatives did your station support this past year?  We want to hear about what happened in your community and the impact of your team's effort.  We have appreciated reviewing nominations in the past of initiatives that have been well-established and stood the test of time in your markets, and will continue to review them - BUT our board is giving strong weight in judging the entries to ideas that are new, unique and creative.

Entries will be judged using the following criteria:

• Benefit to the community
• Magnitude of the effort
• Staff support and participation
• Sustainability of the initiative/program
• Other recognition received

The entry should cover only a single initiative or program that the member station has undertaken in the past year rather than covering multiple initiatives or programs. Please complete the online nomination form and submit additional attachments including audio files, photos, station logos by email to info@wab.ca.  Because of file size, please email in advance for instructions on sending video files.  We prefer high resolution HD videos that have not been compressed.

This year’s Gold Medal Awards, mounted and inscribed, will be presented at the Annual Conference of the Association.

Nomination period opens January 21, 2019 to March 22, 2019.

NOTE: The nomination are for community endeavours taking place within 12 months of the awards deadline date.
