We REALLY REALLY REALLY mean it when we say this contest gets better every year. With high-caliber entrants from around the globe, who produce for AMAZING radio stations, the decision gets tougher each year. 

First, I want to thank all entrants who took the time to write scripts, get voiceover, produce and upload their entries. Most of them come in over the weekends, which tells us it’s something you’re truly passionate about. It’s also radio, so I guess we all work on the weekends 😉

I’d also like to thank all the Benztown voiceover talent who pitched in their services, providing free reads to all entrants for the contest. You know who you are … Corri English, Joe Alan, John Hunerlach, Kelly Malone, Lisa Keys and Paula Tiso

So let’s take a good look at this year’s Contender – Brendan Tacey aka BT (Head of Production, Triple M Network, Southern Cross Austereo in Melbourne), and all the semi-finalists this year – Jonathan Young, Chris Longman, Ilya Myagkov, Mikel Vilchez, and Alban Rivoal!!!
