Best Outside Broadcast Award
This Award is open to organisations to apply based on an outside broadcast in the last 12 months. It recognises the importance of outside broadcasts as a means of engaging with the community and featuring special events or community activities. Samples of the broadcast are required to demonstrate community participation and effectiveness of event or activity coverage.
With the live broadcast of the 50th Anniversary Wave Hill Walk Off Freedom Day Festival 2016, the live outside broadcast in the remote community of Kalkarindj, was one to remember for the TEABBA crew. Bringing all the listener's culture, song, dance and history within the 29 remote Indigenous communities and also to listeners nationwide through other stations around Australia that took their live feed. For the first time in three years, Daguragu 5.7Kms out of Kalkarindji were able to tune in as well which made listening to the performances on the night much easier for the old people of Daguragu who might have had trouble travelling to and from Kalkarindji.
