RADIO “VAN” VICTORIOUS IN THREE “INTERNEWS” COMPETITIONS

On July 14 “Internews” Armenia summed up three more Internet-competitions,
held among the Armenian radio companies under a project, supported by the Open
Society Institute Assistance Foundation-Armenia. The winners of these monthly
competitions are determined by online vote. As it has been reported, the first
competition – for the best jingle – was won by “City FM” radio company (see
YPC Weekly Newsletter, April 28
– May 4, 2006
).

Out of 7 radio companies participating in the competition “Best Newscast on
FM Diapason” the winner was “200 Seconds” newscast of Radio “Van”.

Maria Gevorgian of the same Radio “Van” was ahead of her 9 colleagues of 8
radio companies in the competition “Best News Presenter on FM Diapason”.

The results of the competition “Best Public Service Announcement” were deemed
invalid, as in the online ballot the number of votes was fewer than the required
(at least 100) and so were the participants (at least 5 radio companies). Under
the circumstances, according to the rules, the winner is defined through a secret
ballot of the radio company representatives present at the competition sum-up.
Thus, out of 11 advertising pieces of 4 radio companies that of Radio “Van”
became the winner.

The competition winners received monetary prizes and gifts.

The next “Internews” radio competition is to be held in September. The works
presented at the competition can be heard and voted for on “Internews” web-site
