In 2022, Radiocentre Ireland launched the inaugural Irish Audio Awards. Established by the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland and RTE, Radiocentre Ireland’s purpose is to showcase the unique strength and power of audio. We are committed to recognising and rewarding great work in audio, celebrating creativity in audio advertising, and championing the teams behind the winning work.

The biggest thing that came out of the 2022/23 Irish Audio Awards was opportunity, because radio is important. It's the art of audio, coupled with science. Audio has such potential. It’s so big, bigger than we imagine. The best radio engages emotionally, it’s not a passive experience. The innovation is always changing and there’s respect in the presence of a good idea. Creatives are competitive people and audio is one of the most creative medium, we should be world leaders and we are scratching the surface.
