RAP-CD-logo-2Welcome to the May 2013 RAP CD as we present the 23rd Annual RAP Awards Best of the Rest Part 2. This month we shine the light on Feature Productions and Promos, with Feature Productions on tracks 1-8, Small Market Promos on tracks 9-13, Medium Market Promos on tracks 14-19, and Large Market Promos on tracks 20-22. Like last month's "Best of the Rest", these are entries that came very close to making it to the finals, some missing it by a single vote! Great work everyone! (Note: The name listed next to the entry title is the name of the individual submitting the entry. In most cases, this person is the entry's producer, copywriter, or voice talent, or any combination thereof. In cases where the person submitting the entry was not listed in the credits, we have substituted the producer's name.) Next month we're back to our regular CD format.
