BLOOPERS? ZOOM FAILS? NEW FOR THE 2021 AWARDS PROGRAM

We're ALL one take wonders, right?  No gaffs, no fails, no mis-pronunciations... WE. ARE. PERFECT!  Not.  Whether you're cutting some VO's, a commercial spot, live remote, news spot, anchor desk fails or especially this past year, Zoom meeting bloops, we're human and these moments happen...

...and they are usually very funny, and we'd love to share them as part of our virtual awards program!  But we need you to share them with us!  Nothing inappropriate or controversial, simply good fun from the most creative and funny people we know!
 
Share video out-takes, edit room floor footage, audio cuts, images, screen captures, etc. by using a special section on this year’s entry form.  Submit the file(s) as you would any of your entry media and there will also be a place where you can add any description, set-ups, backstories, or commentary.
 
Note: This is not a judged category...it's just for fun.  After this past year, we could all use a very good laugh!

Participating in the NCSA Program for Radio and TV

ISBA Non-Commercial Sustaining Announcement Program (NCSA)
 
 
The NCSA program is designed to help organizations that operate in the public interest, such as non-profits and state agencies, get their messages heard in an organized manner. Here's how it works:
 
  • A non-profit or government agency funds the ISBA to distribute their public education message. 
  • The agency provides pre-recorded spots that the ISBA distributes to its member stations. 
  • The agency then receives advertising time donated by ISBA broadcast stations. 
  • Station affidavits confirm when and where the message has aired.
