DRM Enterprise Award winner to be declared 'Social Media Influencer' 2019

MUMBAI: The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium is launching its fifth DRM Enterprise Award to be presented to an individual or an organisation that has promoted Digital Radio Mondiale successfully, has convincingly explained how DRM can be applied innovatively and can be actively introduced. The winner will be a remarkable individual or organization, a true social media influencer, who has used for this purpose communications methods like, though not exclusively, social media. The aim in awarding this prize is to spread the word about DRM, stimulate interest and take-up, bring more knowledge and interest to new territories and consolidate interest in existing DRM countries.

To qualify for the award an individual or organisation needs to be nominated by two credible endorsers, aware and ready to testify about the good work of the nominee.

The latest DRM annual prize was aimed at South-East Asia and was awarded in January 2018 to the DRM Stakeholders’ Group led by the Indian network operator BECIL.

The winner of the 2019 award and cash prize will be selected by an independent board of specialists, made up of representatives of the DRM Consortium.

The deadline is 15 September 2019 and the award will be announced before the end of the year.

DRM Consortium Chair, Ruxandra Obreja, hopes, “The fifth enterprise award will recognise the efforts of one exceptional individual or organisation prepared to explain simply and convincingly the many obvious benefits of Digital Radio Mondiale and digital radio.  The attractive features of DRM like the many data services, its traffic information capability or the emergency warning functionality offer new opportunities and applications to meet real and urgent needs of people in many parts of the world.”
