2008 Radio-Mercury Awards call for entry begins today


The 2008 Radio-Mercury Awards Call for Entry officially begins accepting online entries today at RadioMercuryAwards.com.  Radio-Mercury Award winning agency, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, inspired the concept for the design of this year’s call for entry and website.

The entry deadline is 2/22. Winners will be announced on 5/21 in LA.
