We are pleased to recognize the winning entries from the inaugural BEA Student Clubs Audio Shorts Competition. Nine teams from around the globe signed up to compete in the 48-hour audio shorts competition held the weekend of March 1st – 3rd. The competition was sponsored by FirstCom Music. Each team was assigned a specific genre to use for their story as well as three “constants” that had to be featured in their production—any audio clip from the FirstCom Music’s library, a character named Daniel Valentine, and a line of dialog “This is not something that I am willing to talk about right now.” Winning teams will receive certificates and complimentary registrations to attend the 2019 Radio Show in Dallas as part of the Radio Show Student Scholar Program.
1st Place: Big Trouble in a Little Car — Bobcat Media Productions: Jenna Byrd, Nick Venezia, Frank Saunders, Megan Newsome, Noah Richards, JJ Simons, Sam Hart, Emma Parry, Kyle Thatcher & Bebee Salter; Georgia College and State University
