A project I worked on at the BBC as project manager has been nominated for a 2013 Sony Radio Academy Award in the Best Use Of Multiplatform category! BBC’s The Listening Project is a social & cultural archive (inspired by Storycorps) in which they collect recorded conversations made and submitted by UK residents. They’re then selected and broadcast at regional BBC stations around the UK.
The Listening Project shares some technical (and creative) DNA with another BBC project I’ve mentioned before which is close to my heart, BBC Introducing. The Introducing Uploader was another project I was proud to project manage in 2011 through a platform migration on BBC infrastructure. BBC Introducing actually won Gold the same Academy Award in 2011. I wasn’t credited on that one but The Listening Project folks were kind enough to include me in their nomination this year. Thanks guys & good luck!
