*** A note about the trophy count referenced in the opening paragraph: We attribute the count to the producer of the entry in the case where the radio station or production house has paid for the entry. In the case where a person has paid for the entry themselves, and let’s say, was the copywriter or a voice talent, we will credit the trophy count to that person. But in effect, all the individuals involved in a winning entry have “merited” a trophy. So in one respect, there are many more people who have been involved in trophy winning entries that are not being tabulated in this count. But for our fun in keeping track, we give the count to the producer or the person paying the entry fee.
