NYF’s Grand Jury selected 353 Finalists from entries submitted from 31 countries worldwide. Entries were judged by the 2018 Grand Jury on production values, organisation, presentation of information, creativity and use of the medium. All entries achieving Finalist status proceed to the trophy round.

"From audio books, podcasts, and sound art to documentaries, drama, and breaking news," said Rose Anderson, VP/Executive Director of New York Festivals Radio Program Awards. "The international Grand Jury members once again selected Finalists whose content exhibited creativity and innovation."
