Radio Works

ATTN:  OAB member station staff

Only a writer writes right. So who better to write the value of radio than radio creative writers? If you feel you’re that writer then it’s your time to shine! 

The Ontario Association of Broadcasters invites member station staff to enter creative for one or both of the options below:

Create and produce a 30 second radio ad for listeners reminding them of the benefits of listening to radio!
OR, if you could tell a million potential clients that radio is the most effective means of advertising what would you tell them? 
Create and produce a 30 second spot for businesses demonstrating the benefits of advertising on radio!
The best of BOTH ads will be played across Ontario and if that ad is yours then you will be rewarded with $500. Winning writers will be presented with their winnings at the OAB Conference Awards Luncheon, Thursday, November 9th at the Marriott Toronto Airport Hotel.Email your completed ads to memberservices@OAB.ca by September 22nd to enter. Good luck!
