The Australian radio industry has announced eight creative agencies as finalists for the Gold Siren Award recognising the best single radio ad or campaign of 2021.
 
The winner will be announced at the 17th annual Siren Awards in Sydney on June 3, at a live event hosted by comedian and 2DayFM breakfast host Dave Hughes.

Joan Warner, the chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australia, said: “In a year of adversity the nominated finalists have found new and inventive ways to capture attention and encourage people to rethink their behaviours.  Their work helped clients to stand out in areas as diverse as retail, food, health, the environment and domestic violence.  We look forward to a great night where we can showcase some outstanding creativity.”
 
The Siren Awards celebrate and foster excellence in radio advertising and are judged by the Siren Creative Council, a panel of advertising agency and radio industry experts.
 
Three Silver Sirens will also be awarded for the best radio ads across three categories: single, campaign and craft. A Siren Client Award of $1,000 cash will also be presented to the writers of the ad voted the best by a panel of clients.
