The Best News Feature (BNF) category honors exceptional news features reported by radio newsrooms and independent reporters worldwide. Submissions should be stories (local, national, international) produced in response to events and issues. Enterprising work that brings new stories to light is also encouraged.

BNF entries should exhibit exemplary reporting and journalistic integrity. As with Best Documentary entries, BNF submissions should begin with a compelling story choice, and exhibit strong writing, creativity and the use of sound where appropriate. BNF entries are not eligible for the Best Documentary Award. (Length eligibility 3-10 minutes)

This award is presented to a producer who entered the audio field between July 2013 and July 2015. To qualify, each entrant must have recorded, written and mixed her/his entry.

BNA candidates must confirm on the entry form that their submission was produced in accordance with the guidelines listed above.

This award recognizes a single documentary or feature (regardless of style or structure) that has significantly impacted an individual, group or community.
