Background information

NRJ Global, the consulting and communication powerhouse of NRJ Group, attracts a daily audience of 10 million listeners on its radio stations NRJ, Cherie FM, Nostalgie and Rire & Chansons.  For the past 3 years, NRJ Global has organized the Audio Creative Awards competition in partnership with the Sup de Pub communications school. The competition aims to unleash audio creativity through a fresh student vision, playing with today’s creative codes and with the great opportunities offered by the development of digital audio.

The awarding system

Each year, the students receive briefs from 5 advertisers, conducted under real-life conditions. Gathered in teams, the students work on their ideas and creative recommendations, which they present to the jury. The jury is presided by Cécile Chambaudrie on a yearly basis, President of NRJ Global, Anne-Françoise Stasser, Managing Director of Sup de Pub, and two advertisers and agencies. Composed of producers, creatives and brands, the jury is highly representative of the advertising market.

To support the students, NRJ Global organizes masterclasses and creative coaching seminars presented by the marketing teams and JEAN-PAUL, the brand entertainment collective that gives voice to brands via branding, strategic planning, influence, social media, CSR and production.

The awards ceremony takes place every year at AudioMoves, the annual NRJ Global conference, which addresses the current market trends with the industry’s leading experts.
