Individual Categories

There are some categories where the HBA awards a single prize and where a shortlist is not released. These categories are:

The John Witney Award

The award celebrates an outstanding contribution, by an individual, to Hospital Radio over a period of years and is open to anyone working in hospital radio. The nomination should explain why the candidate has made a real and long-lasting impact. The candidate may be drawn from the broadcasting arena but may equally be found from a technical or administrative background. They may have worked for single or multiple stations over the years. 

Recognising Innovation across Hospital Radio

Sponsored by Myriad Playout

Designed to recognise those behind the scenes, this award celebrates pushing the boundaries, using innovative, novel or pioneering ideas. This award is open to all across the various roles hospital broadcasting organisations may have. Technical to administrative, fundraising to Trust or Board engagement – this award celebrates achieving a goal using new and inspiring techniques.
