The Student Radio Awards 2024

The Student Radio Awards supported by BBC Sounds and Global have been held annually since 1995. It’s a night to celebrate and recognise the achievement and talent in the student radio and audio community.

Judged by nearly two-hundred industry-appointed judges, hundreds of student entries, spanning over a dozen categories, are whittled down to bronze, silver and gold winners.

The ceremony, hosted in the prestigious indigo at The O2 arena in London, is attended by hundreds of students and industry guests, including the biggest names in broadcast talent and senior management from the BBC, commercial and independent networks, media agencies, and companies around the UK. 

A glamorous evening of drink and performance, the awards have grown into one of the biggest awards in the media world, and have developed into one of the key events in the professional radio calendar.

Headline sponsors, BBC Sounds and Global, are long-time supporters of the SRA and the Awards. Over the years student radio has launched the careers of Jordan North and Greg James to name but a few. The Awards serve both to celebrate the diversity of content and talent in student radio and to help launch the next generation of radio talent into the industry.

Entries are open NOW! And the 2024 Student Radio Awards supported by BBC Sounds and Global will take place on the 19th November 2024.
