Clear Channel Radio will host the luncheon at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.
The panel of judges includes Amy Corr, managing editor of MediaPost's online newsletters; Scott Donaton, publisher of Advertising Age and Creativity; Teressa Iezzi, editor of Creativity; Jonah Bloom, editor of Advertising Age; Bradley Johnson, director of data analytics for Advertising Age and former editor of American Demographics; and Josh Jackson, co-founder and editor in chief of Paste.
Judges will be selecting the best advertising creative in six different award categories following a preliminary judging phase to be handled by dozens of advertising executives. Clear Channel Radio announced an industry-wide call for entries earlier this month.
EAR Award prizes for the best radio creative include $1,000,000 in radio airtime, a new BMW 3 series convertible, a pair of new Mini Coopers, a private chartered jet to any U.S. destination, and more. There is no charge to enter, and creative advertisement submissions can be uploaded by Aug. 10 at earawards.com.
